6 in the presence and absence of nanoclay. 6 all of the effective systems comprising the nanoclay demonstrated significant synergistic behaviour except for melamine phosphate because of the agglomeration of the clay. They then report in the case of nylon 6 that the presence of nanoclay acts in an antagonistic manner (in terms of LOI). 6, they proposed that the nanoclay reinforces the fibre structure both in solid and molten phases, thereby reducing its dripping capacity. Such an effect would be likely to reduce the LOI value as the melting polymer has greater difficulty receding from the igniting flame.
