PP/nanoclay nonwoven composites were prepared by spun bond technology on spunbonding machine. The prepared nonwoven composites were characterized by SEM and EDX techniques. The thermal properties were analyzed using DSC, revels lower Tg inflection point as well as H value for nonwoven with nanoclay addition. This composite nonwoven fabric was also evaluated for the change in their mechanical properties. The tensile strength was found increased with the addition of nanoclay. The tear strength of pp/nanoclay nonwoven was also found improved, compared to the nonwoven prepared without the addition of nanoclay.
