“Click” chemistry method was used to fabricate novel waterborne polyurethane (WPU)/montmorillonite (MMT) composites based on alkyne-containing WPU and azide-modified montmorillonite. The morphology of these composites was characterized by x-ray diffractometer, scanning electron microscope. The mechanical properties, thermal stability, and flame resistance of the composites were investigated by tensile, thermogravimetry and cone calorimetric experiments, etc. The experimental results show that the tensile strength, water resistance and flame retardancy of the WPU/MMT composites have been reinforced efficiently owing to the linking of MMT by click reaction.
