Abstract
In this study, the nanocomposites have been synthesized with the natural Tunisian clay which has the advantage of being cheap. In fact, it is composed of many kinds of clay (Kaolinite, Dolomite, calcite, Illite and Quartz). This clay has been cleaned, purified, dried and mixed with different resins currently used in many textile applications such as comfort, elasticity, impermeability … etc. The samples have been examined under MEB in order to identify them and ensure the formation of nanocomposites. The mixture resin/clay has been deposit on a 100% cotton fabric (400 g/m2) and tested on adiathermic power (AP%) measuring equipment. The parameter of thermal isolation of coated fabrics has been calculated through the difference in temperature between the interior and the exterior of the fabric in focus. It has been noticed that the increase in clay quantity improves significantly the thermal characteristics of the coated fabrics. The rigidity of the fabrics has also increased in terms of clay quantity, this proves that this new kind of fabric must be used in specific domains that compile their isolating characteristics and their increasing rigidity with the rate of clay inserted.
