inorganic fillers and water permeation  

Posted by Olivier Pinto on November 08, 2004 at 19:21:16:


could you please give a general statement with regard to the impact of inorganic fillers dispersed within polymeric matrices on the resulting water permeation properties of the solid composite?

I have in mind that increasing filler content will decrease permeation, but I would appreciate a more detailed theoretical understanding of the phenomena involved.

Thanks in advance.
best regards,
