Influence of glass hollow microsphere fillers on the Rheological behavior of Epoxy resin

Conference Dates

March 26-31, 2017


The rheological behavior of epoxy resin filled with glass hollow microspheres was studied using three types of microspheres with different particle size distributions. The shear-rate dependence on viscosity, as well as relative apparent viscosity, of the suspensions were investigated at different microsphere filler loadings. The change in relative viscosity with different types of microsphere loads was investigated using the established semi empirical model to estimate the critical filler load. It was found that the critical filler load for all kangspecific surface area of the filler.
