Abstract

Improved bonding of fiberglass, Kevlar and carbon fiber to a variety of thermoset resins has been achieved via the addition of minor amounts of organotitanate and/or organozirconate coupling agents. Peel strength, fiber pullout and chemical resistance data is provided to demonstrate significant improvements in bonding between these fibers and epoxy, polyurethane, polyester and vinyl ester resins.
