Abstract

We have investigated the radiation resistance of epoxy resins cured with different curing agents—phthalic and maleic anhydrides, m-phenylenediamine, hexamethylenediamine, and triethanolamine titanate. Test data on the physicomechanical properties of these compositions are presented; the degree of variation of the gel fraction has been determined; thermomechanical curves and IR absorption spectra have been recorded. Conclusions are drawn concerning the mechanism of the radiochemical processes and it is shown that the nature of these processes and hence the nature and extent of the change in the physicomechanical properties of the materials—the cured epoxy compounds—primarily depend on the type of curing agent employed.
