Purpose: In order to improve physical and mechanical properties of high density polyethylene (HDPE) addition of filler, rigid particles and even elastomer to HDPE is very common. One of the most important filler which is added to it is nano size calcium carbonate (CaCO3). To avoid agglomeration of nano size calcium carbonate addition of fatty acids such as stearic acid is very common. Design/methodology/approach: In the current study, nanocomposites with 10vol% nano size calcium carbonate were prepared. To investigate the role of stearic acid on nanocomposite behaviour, nanoparticles were coated at different stearic acid content. Thermal behaviour of high density polyethylene and its nanocomposites reinforced with both uncoated and coated calcium carbonate were investigated. For this purpose differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) test was used. Findings: The results of DSC test showed that addition of 10vol% calcium carbonate to HDPE causes a slightly rise in its melting point but stearic acid content has no significant effect on the melting temperature of HDPE nanocomposites. Research limitations/implications: : Agglomeration of nanosized calcium carbonate during sample preparation was the major research limitation. Originality/value: Crystallization temperature of HDPE with addition of 10vol% calcium carbonate increases, while addition of stearic acid causes to decrease it. Both stearic acid content and 10vol% calcium carbonate have no significant effect on crystallinity index of HDPE.
