In this study, polyamide 11 (PA 11) and halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) with varying magnesium hydroxide (MH) contents were prepared using a twin-screw extruder and injection moulding process. The mechanical properties of nanocomposites were investigated. The nanocomposites are made up of 100 phr of PA11 and 4 phr of HNTs, with three different MH loadings of 10, 20 and 30 phr. Tensile and flexural strength showed slightly increase while Young’s and flexural modulus continuously increased with addition of MH. Meanwhile, the impact strength and elongation at break decreases.
