Carbon fibre adhesion to organic matrices

  • J. P. Favre
  • J. Perrin


It has been possible to measure carbon fibre adhesion to organic resins on single fibres by the “pulling-out” method. Tests were concerned with fibres as-received and following surface treatment. In spite of its limitations, this method provided values in good agreement with the computations of various authors. It can be useful for determining the fibre/ interface strength and testing the efficiency of surface treatments.
