The Influence of Water on the Epoxy-Resin-Glass Interphases

  • T. Marzi (a1), U. Schröder (a1), M. Heß (a1) and R. Kosfeld (a1)


The absorption of water in glass fiber reinforced epoxy resins is a complex process. With dynamic-mechanical measurements it is possible to distinguish locations of water in the resin-glass interphase, in micro-cracks of the resin, and diluted in the bulk polymer. The dominant mechanism of incorporation depends on the resin/hardener system, the surface treatment of the glass fabrics, and the sorption temperature.
