This is a review of the existing studies on the Polymer/ clay nano composite used for improving water and moisture barrier in coating. Clays have been and continue to be one of the more important industrial minerals. Research and development activities by clay scientists in academia, government, and industry are continually resulting in new and innovative clay products many of these new applications are the result of improved processing which provides clays of higher purity, more precise particle size and distribution, whiter and brighter color, modified surface chemistry, and other physical and chemical modifications. Some new and improved clay products include tailored or engineered paper coating kaolins, nanocomposites for plastics etc. The use of mineral pigments in coating to provide improved barrier properties has recently gaining increased attention. I described the use of Polymer nano clay for improving the barrier properties of the coated paper studied by several researchers.
