The paper investigates the effect of adding a combination of rigid nanoparticles and core-shell rubber nanoparticles on the tensile, fracture mechanics, electrical and thermo-mechanical properties of epoxy resins. SiO2 nanoparticles, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT’s), as rigid nanofillers, and core-shell rubber (CSR) nanoparticles, as soft nanofillers were used with bisphenol-A-based epoxy resin. Further, the rigid fillers were added systematically with core-shell rubber nanoparticles to i...

The effect of adding different types of soft block copolymer on the tensile properties, fracture mechanic properties, and thermo-mechanical properties of bisphenol F based epoxy resin were studied. Two different self-assembling block copolymers, (a) constituting of a center block of poly (butyl acrylate) and two side blocks of poly (methyl) methacrylate-co-polar co-monomer (BCP 1) and (b) poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(butylene oxide) (PEO-PBO) diblock copolymer (BCP 2), were used with an epoxy-har...

The effect of the hybridization of a triblock copolymer and a rigid TiO2 nanofiller on the tensile, fracture mechanics and thermo-mechanical properties of bisphenol F based epoxy resin were studied. The self-assembling block copolymer, constituted of a center block of poly (butyl acrylate) and two side blocks of poly (methyl) methacrylate-co-polar co-monomer was used as a soft filler, and TiO2 nanoparticles were employed as rigid modifiers. Toughening solely by block copolymers (BCP’s) led to th...

Abstract The toughening performance of hybridized core-shell rubber particles and block copolymers on bulk epoxy and epoxy based carbon fibre reinforced composites was investigated. The results reveal that the interlaminar fracture toughness of the fibre reinforced laminates increased by more than 300% due to an enhanced fibre-matrix adhesion because of a combination of BCP and CSR particles. However, no synergistic improvement of the fracture mechanics properties of the bulk materials was found...

Abstract Nano/micro glass fibril (nGF) was used as a reinforcement material for the modification of epoxy resin with different contents, in which the amino group was introduced initially to the nGF surface via a silane treatment reaction. Composite samples based on untreated nGF filled epoxy were also fabricated for comparison. The effects of these fillers on the characteristics of cured epoxy resin, such as compatibility, curing degree, fracture toughness, mechanical, morphological, and thermal...

Silica nanoparticles (SNP) and core-shell-rubber (CSR) nanoparticles were added to a lightly crosslinked epoxy in an effort to improve fracture toughness. Properties such as the glass transition temperature, tensile modulus, and yield strength were also measured. Toughening mechanisms were studied by inspecting the fracture surfaces with scanning electron microscope and exploring subsurface damage using both transmission optical microscope and transmission electron microscope. Ternary nanocompos...

As a green filler comprising both nano- and micro-sized fibrils, micro/nano white bamboo fibrils (MWBFs) were treated with a silane coupling agent (S-MWBFs) prior to their introduction in an epoxy resin (EP). The sequential processes of steam explosion, alkaline treatment, and micro grinding were used to prepare to MWBFs. The effects of the S-MWBFs on various characteristics of the cured EP such as compatibility, fracture toughness, morphology, mechanical property, and flame retardation were stu...

This paper reports a novel approach to toughen epoxy resin with nano-silica fabricated from rice husk using a thermal treatment method with a particle size distribution in range of 40–80 nm. The nano-silica content was in the range, 0.03–0.10 phr, with respect to epoxy. The mechanical test showed that with the addition of 0.07 phr of rice husk based nano-silica, the fracture toughness of the neat epoxy resin increased 16.3% from 0.61 to 0.71 MPa m1/2. The dynamic mechanical analysis test results...

This study systematically investigates the influence of a Polymethylmethacrylate-block-Polybutylacrylate-block-Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA-b-PBuA-b-PMMA) triblock copolymer (BCP) on the flexural properties, the static fracture toughness and especially the resistance to fatigue crack propagation (FCP) of a cycloaliphatic amine cured bisphenol A based epoxy resin (EP). The results show that already small concentrations of BCP can significantly improve fracture toughness and the resistance to fati...

Abstract The mechanisms of failure of a composite sandwich structure subjected to a projectile impact have been investigated. The results reveal the complex interplay between the various damage dissipation mechanisms. The effects of modifying the matrix of the skins with polysiloxane core–shell rubber (CSR) nanoparticles and silica nanoparticles were investigated. Single cantilever beam specimens were tested to evaluate skin-core debonding. The addition of CSR nanoparticles to the matrix beyond ...

ABSTRACT Epoxy is a high performance yet brittle thermosetting resin. To deem epoxy fit for aircraft applications, its mechanical properties, especially fracture toughness, must be improved. In this work, epoxy resin was reinforced with 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 wt.% polystyrene-graphene oxide (PS-GO) core-shell nano-particles to enhance its fracture toughness. Styrene monomer (oil phase) was polymerized in situ using aqueous GO dispersion (water phase) to obtain PS-GO core-shell nano-particles, which ap...

Abstract The primary objective of the present study is to investigate how alumina nanoparticles with a low loading fraction by weight affect the physicomechanical and tribological characteristics of epoxy nanocomposites. Alumina nanoparticles with loading fractions of zero, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4 wt% are homogeneously dispersed in the epoxy matrix. Density, hardness, Young's modulus, compressive yield strength, toughness, elasticity, friction coefficient, and specific wear rate of the epoxy comp...

This work studies the effects of combining triblock copolymers with carbon nanoparticles (carbon nanotubes, graphene and carbon black) on curing kinetics. The chosen triblock copolymer was poly (propylene glycol)-block-poly (ethylene glycol)-block-poly (propylene glycol) (PPG-b-PEG-b-PPG), which has different contents of PEG in its structure. The main objective is to investigate the influence of the miscibility of the PPG-b-PEG-b-PPG copolymer in epoxy nanocomposites. The PEG fraction in the cop...

The phenol-containing phthalonitrile resin is a kind of self-curing phthalonitrile resin with high-temperature resistance and excellent properties. However, the onefold phthalonitrile resin is unattainable to cured completely, and the brittleness of the cured product is non-negligible. This paper focuses on solving the above problems by blending novolac resin into phenol-containing phthalonitrile. Under the action of abundant hydroxyl group, the initial curing temperature and gelation time at 17...
