Title: Optimized Resins and Sizings for Vinyl Ester/Carbon Fiber Composites

Abstract

This report will summarize the results of a Technical Collaboration project to develop technology suitable for the fabrication of styrene-free vinyl ester / carbon fiber prepregs. Numerous combinations of resins from Ashland, sizings from Michelman, and fibers from Zoltek have been investigated at Michigan State and at UDRI, and the processing and properties of the best-performing systems are described.
