Effect of Fiber Content on Void Morphology in Resin Transfer Molded Composites
(Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology, 2009)
Effect of fiber volume fraction on occurrence, morphology, and spatial distribution of microvoids in resin transfer molded E-glass/epoxy composites is investigated. Three disk-shaped center-gated composite parts containing ...
Dispersion Characterization of Nanoclay in Molded Epoxy Disks by Combined Image and Electron Microbeam Analysis
(Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology, 2008)
The state of nanoclay dispersion in a molded epoxy disk and its effects on the thermo-mechanical properties of the resulting nanocomposite are analyzed. A commercially available nanoclay, Cloisite® 25A, is mechanically ...
Filtration and Breakdown of Clay Clusters During Resin Transfer Molding of Nanoclay/Glass/Epoxy Composites
(Journal of Composite Materials, 2008)
Dispersion of nanoclay clusters during resin transfer molding of nanoclay/glass/epoxy disks is investigated. In addition to a center-gated disk containing only 14% glass fibers, three nanocomposite disks are fabricated ...
Effect of Nanoclay Content on Void Morphology in Resin Transfer Molded Composites
(Journal of Thermoplastic Composite Materials, 2008)
Effects of nanoclay content on morphology and spatial distribution of voids in resin transfer molded nanoclay/E-glass/epoxy composite disks are investigated. Closite®25A nanoclay loads of 2, 5, and 10wt% are mixed by ...
