CNC in epoxy resins (part 2)

Published On: 16 September 2020Categories: CNC Community

Complementing our last publication on epoxy resins, another group, Kumara, Falzona, Kuna, Wilson, Graninger and Hawkins of Queen’s University, Belfast and Monash University, Australia has shown that the addition of 2 wt% CNC to glass fibre reinforced epoxy resin yielded increases of 56% in storage modulus, 50% in flexural modulus, 55% in flexural strength, 14% in tensile modulus and 24% in tensile strength. Again, SEM showed evidence of the strengthened interface created by CNC in these fibre-reinforced composites.
