Thermo oxidative aging of polymers and polymer‐matrix composites studied with cyclic indentation
October 1-6, 2017
The growing use of polymer-matrix composites in aircraft structures leads to the necessity of understanding the degradation phenomena due to their exposure to high temperatures. For T
The aging of three epoxy resins (PR520, Tactix and RTM6) in pure state and reinforced with carbon fibers has been characterized by Ultra-Micro Indentation on force-controlled Fischerscope H100C equipment. These materials were aged at 150°C, in air at atmospheric pressure up to 1000 hours and under pure oxygen environment at a pressure of 2 bar, to accelerate the oxidative aging.
