The electrochemical evaluation of the surfaces of carbon fibres

  • R. Dietz
  • M. E. Peover


Electrochemical methods are used to follow the changes in wetted fibre area produced by surface treatment, to estimate the fraction of that area in pores and to detect surface chemical groupings. The changes in area wetted by electrolyte correlate with the changes in interlaminar shear strength of the corresponding epoxy resin composites.
