Title: Toughened epoxy resins: Preformed particles as tougheners for adhesives and matrices

Abstract

Free-flowing,preformed,rigid,multilayer acrylic core-shell polymers were used to enhance the toughness of epoxy resins. The glass transition temperatures of the cured epoxys were over 190 degrees centigrade.

  • The thermal shock properties of toughened epoxy resins with ceramic particles and fillers were evaluated. Ceramic particles included silicon nitride, alumina, silica, and silicon carbide. Tests were evaluated by fracture mechanics.
  • Impregnating resins for use in fusion magnet technology are required to be radiation stable, have a long useable life together with some degree of toughness to minimise the risk of cracking during cool-down. Some multi-functional resins in combination with solid aromatic amines have, in the past, been shown to have lost little of their strength after a total absorbed dose of 200 MGy. Using resins that are known to be radiation stable with a liquid aromatic amine hardener, the effect of adding an aromatic epoxy resin as a reactive 'toughening agent,' to improve the toughness of otherwise brittle resins hasmore » been assessed. Boron free glass composites, using various amounts of added toughening agent were prepared by vacuum impregnation and a number of critical composite properties have been measured, at room temperature and at 77 K.« less
  • This paper deals with the strength and the sealing performance of pipe flange connections combining the bonding force of adhesives with the clamping force of bolts. The epoxy adhesives or anaerobic sealants are bonded at the interface partially instead of gaskets in pipe flange connections. The stress distribution in the epoxy adhesives (anaerobic sealant), which governs the sealing performance, and the variations in axial bolt force are analyzed, using an axisymmetrical theory of elasticity, when an internal pressure is applied to a connection in which two pipe flanges are clamped together buy bolts and nuts with an initial clamping forcemore » after being joined by epoxy adhesives or anaerobic sealant. In addition, a method for estimating the strength of the combination connection is demonstrated. Experiments are performed and the analytical results are consistent with the experimental results concerning the variation in axial bolt force and the strength of combination connections. It can be seen that the strength of connections increases with a decrease in the bolt pitch circle diameter. Furthermore, it is seen that the sealing performance of such combination connections in which the interface is bonded partially is improved over that of pipe flange connections with metallic gaskets.« less
