In this paper we report the morphological and mechanical characteristics of textile fabric coated with nanoclay composites. There has been an increasing consideration in nanotechnology during the present decade due to its enormous potential in applying and creating novel materials for enhanced properties and applications. Many studies were carried out in improving the textiles and clothing properties and performances by applying nanocomposites. In this work, nanocomposites were prepared from mixtures of resin/clay with various percentages of clay. The obtained coatings were then deposited on a cotton fabric. Morphology and properties of nanocomposites’ coated fabric were measured by DRX, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and mechanical tests. The results showed that when observing the multilayers on SEM images, it can be deduced that nanocomposites using classical clay could be synthesized if they are added to PU and PAC resins. Also, the mechanical performances of fabric is globally increased versus the amount of clay for the two used resins. The maximum clay percentage to enhance the mechanical performance of a fabric is between 4 percent and 5 percent. As a matter of fact, the use of important amounts superior to 5 percent does not bring any better results.
