Fiber-reinforced polyester composites have received significant attention in a variety of applications due to their considerable potential due to such characteristics as high strength, stiffness, and modulus. However, one of the most important concerns about polymeric composites is their sensitivity to moisture attack. This work has been conducted to investigate the effects of nanoclay addition on reinforcing glass/polyester composites against water absorption and the resultant deterioration of flexural strength. Therefore, chopped strand mat and woven fiberglass polyester specimens were fabricated by using the hand lay-up technique with varying weight percentages of Cloisite 20A nanoclays (0, 1.5, and 3 wt%) and immersion in water for a time duration of 21 days. The specimens were weighed for the water absorption test. The results showed a remarkable drop in water absorption of the composite samples with the increase of nanoclay content. Moreover, although all the pure and nanocomposite specimens underwent degradation in flexural strength due to the water absorption, the strength was found to significantly increase with increasing the percentage of nanoclay at all immersion periods. The experimental results were confirmed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). SEM images indicated that the presence of nanoclay protected the fiber/matrix interfaces.
