dc.description.abstract Montmorillonite clay nano particle possess electrical properties, heat, chemical resistance and has the ability of blocking UV light. By reinforcing this clay nano particles to composite fibers will give rise to specific properties such as UV blocking, flame retardant and anti-corrosive behaviors. Electro spinning technology has the ability to produce nano fiber composites containing Montmorillonite nano particles which can be used to produce non woven fabrics or yarns with properties of UV blocking and flame retardant. This nano scale modification to the composite will give rise the ability to extract the improved performance on the end product. Fabrics or nonwovens developed from nano fibers which contain the anti UV and flame retardant properties are more durable and efficient than fabrics coated with anti UV or flame retardant agents. This research was focused on analyzing the UV blocking property of sodium- montmorillonite from Southern Clay, USA and purified clay from Sri Lanka. Testing was carried out to compare and contrast the UV blocking property of Na-MMT and Sri Lankan clay (SL Clay) in powder and liquid form. This research study will also focus in future on extruding Nano fiber composite by mixing the Montmorillonite clay nano particle with polyacrylonitrile (PAN) polymer via electro spinning technology. With the developments of extracting nano clay from Sri Lankan resources will lead to a more efficient and cost effective product to be used in smart houses. en_US
