The three-fibre method in determining environmental resistance of a fibre-resin bond
- 28 Downloads
The three-fibre method used for determining the adhesion between glass fibres and resin, has proved suitable for measuring the environmental effects on the bond strength. The environment used was hot water (95° C) treatment, the decreasing effect of which on the strength was not very clear. This method has two great advantages; it measures the actual bond strength and the environmental effect is directed efficiently on the bond. In this form, the method is only suitable for thermoset resins.
