Epoxy based polymers are one of the most versatile thermoset resins that can be modified into a multitude of applications and fit very specific task as demanded by the application. It offers ease of use and generally safer to handle over other types of thermoset resins which makes it the choice material for many high performance composites.

What is impact testing?

Impact testing is one of the most revealing test methods that demonstrate a material's ability to resist and withstand a high-rate of sudden pressure loading. Its behavior during and after the impact can define its maximum mechanical property and conditional limits upon its destruction.

Why is Impact Testing Important?

The impact resistance of an object provides the ultimate measure of its resistance to its definitive destruction. Governed by the many laws and dynamics of physics, a skilled chemist or materials engineer can determine the design equilibrium and ultimate performance by careful analysis of the material’s disassociation and the manner of its destruction.

With this knowledge, other aspects of mechanical performance can be accurately derived and through skilful engineering one can determine:

  • The impact energies the part can be expected to see in its lifetime,
  • The type of impact that will deliver that energy, and then
  • Select a material that will resist such assaults over the projected life span.

Composite Fabricating Basics

TYPES OF FABRIC WEAVE STYLE AND SURFACE FINISHING

FOR RESIN TYPE COMPATIBILITY

PLAIN WEAVE

Is a very simple weave pattern and the most common style. The warp and fill yarns are interlaced over and under each other in alternating fashion. Plain weave provides good stability, porosity and the least yarn slippage for a given yarn count.

8 HARNESS SATIN WEAVE

The eight-harness satin is similar to the four-harness satin except that one filling yarn floats over seven warp yarns and under one.

This is a very pliable weave and is used for forming over curved surfaces.

4 HARNESS SATIN WEAVE

The four-harness satin weave is more pliable than the plain weave and is easier to conform to curved surfaces typical in reinforced plastics. In this weave pattern there is a three by one interfacing where a filling yarn floats over three warp yarns and under one.

2x2 TWILL WEAVE

Twill weave is more pliable than the plain weave and has better drivability while maintaining more fabric stability than a four or eight harness satin weave. The weave pattern is characterized by a diagonal rib created by one warp yarn floating over at least two filling yarns.

Satin Weave Style For Contoured Parts Fabricating
These styles of fabrics are one of the easiest fabrics to use and it is ideal for laying up cowls, fuselages, ducts and other contoured surfaces with minimal distortions.

The fabric is more pliable and can comply with complex contours and spherical shapes. Because of its tight weave style,

satin weaves are typically used as the surface ply for heavier and courser weaves.

This technique helps reduce fabric print through and requires less gel coat to create a smoother surface.

Step Two: Choose the best epoxy resin system for the job
The principal role of the resin is to bind the fabric into a homogenous rigid substrate
called a composite laminate or FRP- FIBER REINFORCED PLASTIC.
The epoxy resin used in fabricating a laminate will dictate how the FRP will perform when load or pressure is implied on the part.
To choose the proper resin system consider the following factors that is crucial to a laminate's performance.
SIZE AND CONFIGURATION OF THE PART
(NUMBER OF PLIES AND CONTOURED, FLAT OR PROFILED)
CONSOLIDATING FORCE
(FREE STANDING DRY OR HAND LAY-UP, VACUUM BAG OR PLATEN PRESS CURING)
CURING CAPABILITIES
(HEAT CURED OR ROOM TEMPERATURE CURED)
LOAD PARAMETERS
(SHEARING FORCE, TORSIONAL AND DIRECTIONAL LOAD, BEAM STRENGTH)
ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE
(OPERATING TEMPERATURE, AMBIENT CONDITIONS, HUMIDITY, CHEMICAL EXPOSURE, CYCLIC FORCE LOADING)
MATERIAL AND PRODUCTION COST
(BUYING IN BULK WILL ALWAYS PROVIDE THE BEST OVERALL COSTS AS WELL AS DOING IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME)
These factors will dictate the design and the composition of the part and must be carefully considered during the design and engineering phase of the fabrication.

Step Three: Proper Lay-Up Technique

Pre-lay-up notes

Lay out the fabric and precut to size and set aside

Avoid distorting the fabric weave pattern as much as possible

For fiberglass molding, insure the mold is clean and adequate mold release is used

View our video presentation above

"MAX EPOXY RESIN MIXING TECHNIQUE"

Mix the resin only when all needed materials and implements needed are ready and within reach

Mix the proper amount of resin needed and be accurate proportioning the resin and curing agent. Adding more curing agent than the recommended mix ratio will not promote a faster cure.

Over saturation or starving the fiberglass or any composite fabric will yield poor mechanical performance. When mechanical load or pressure is applied on the composite laminate, the physical strength of the fabric should bear the stress and not the resin. If the laminate is oversaturated with the resin it will most likely to fracture or shatter instead of rebounding and resist damage.

Don't how much resin to use to go with the fiberglass?


A good rule of thumb is to maintain a minimum of 30 to 35% resin content by weight, 

this is the optimum ratio used in 

high performance prepreg

 (or pre-impregnated fabrics) typically used in aerospace and high performance structural application.

For general hand lay-ups, calculate using 60% fabric weight to 40% resin weight as a safe factor.

This will insure that the fabricated laminate will be below 40% resin content depending on the waste factor accrued during fabrication.


Place the entire precut fiberglass to be used on a digital scale to determine the

fabric to resin weight ratio.


Measuring by weight will insure accurate composite

fabrication and repeatability, rather than using OSY data.

Ounces per square yard or OSY is also know as aerial weight which is the most common unit of measurement for composite fabrics.


Typical fabric weights regardless of weave pattern


1 yard of 8 OSY fabric at 38 inches wide weighs 224 grams

1 yard of 10 OSY fabric at 38 inches wide weighs 280 grams


To determine how much resin is needed to adequately impregnate the fiberglass, use the following equation:

(Total Weight of Fabric divided by 60%)X( 40%)= weight of mixed resin needed

OR

fw = fabric weight

rc = target resin content

rn= resin needed

MASTER EQUATION

(fw/60%)x(40%)= rn

FOR EXAMPLE

1 SQUARE YARD OF 8-OSY FIBERGLASS FABRIC WEIGHS 224 GRAMS


(224 grams of dry fiberglass / 60%) X 40% = 149.33 grams of resin needed

So for every square yard of 8-ounce fabric,

It will need 149.33 grams of mixed resin.

Computing for resin and curing agent requirements based on

149.33 grams of resin needed

MIX RATIO OF RESIN SYSTEM IS 2:1 OR

50PHR (per hundred resin)

2 = 66.67% (2/3)

+

1= 33.33%(1/3)

=

(2+1)=3 or (66.67%+33.33%)=100% or (2/3+1/3)= 3/3

149.33 x 66.67%= 99.56 grams of Part A RESIN

149.33 x 33.33%= 49.77 grams of Part B Curing Agent

99.56 + 49.77 = 149.33 A/B MIXTURE


Common Factors Of 100% Solids (Zero volatiles and unfilled epoxy resin)

1 gallon of resin = 4239 grams (1.12 g/cc)

1 gallon = 128 fluid ounces

1 gallon of resin = 231 cubic inches

1 fluid ounce of resin = 33.17 grams


Apply the mixed resin unto the surface and then lay the fabric

and allow the resin to saturate through the fabric.

NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND

This is one of the most common processing error that yields sub-standard laminates.

By laying the fiberglass unto a film of resin, less air bubbles are entrapped during the wetting-out stage.

Air is pushed up and outwards instead of forcing the resin through the fabric which will entrap air bubbles.

This technique will displace air unhindered and uniformly disperse through out the fiberglass with minimal mechanical agitation or spreading.

Given enough time and the proper selection of the fabric's surface treatment (fabric to resin compatibility), a dry fabric will seek a state equilibrium and distribute

the applied resin and naturally release air bubbles entrapped within the laminate.

It is then very important that the proper viscosity, working time and surface treatment of the fabric must considered.



Given enough time and the proper selection of the fabric's surface treatment (fabric to resin compatibility), a dry fabric will seek a state equilibrium and distribute the applied resin and naturally release air bubbles entrapped within the laminate. It is then very important that the proper viscosity, working time and surface treatment of the fabric must be considered depending on the application of the composite structure.


There are also fabricating techniques that can be employed to yield high performance laminates. Depending on the size of the part, processes such

as high pressure pressing, vacuum bagging and vacuum assisted resin transfer molding are superior methods over hand dry lay-up.

Air voids or porosity within the laminate is typically where failure propagates when load is applied

(fracturing, compression failure, tearing, torque, tensile strength, creep).



Step Four: Proper Curing

Allow the lay-up to cure for a minimum of 24 to 36 hours before handling.

Optimum cured properties can take up to 7 days depending on the ambient cure condition.

The ideal temperature cure condition of most room temperature epoxy resin is 22 to 27 degrees Celsius at 20% relative humidity.

Higher ambient curing temperatures will promote faster polymerization and development of cured mechanical properties.

Improving mechanical performance via post heat cure

A short heat post cure will further improve the mechanical performance of most epoxy resins. Allow the applied resin system to cure at room temperature until for 18 to 24 hours and if possible, expose heat cure it in an oven or other source of radiant heat (220°F to 250°F) for45 minute to an hour. You can also expose it to direct sunlight but place a dark colored cover, such as a tarp or cardboard to protect it from ultraviolet exposure.

In general room temperature cured epoxy resin has a maximum operating temperature of 250°F and 160°F or lower

if it is under stress or load.

A short heat post cure will insure that the mixed epoxy system is fully cured,

especially for room temperature cured system that can take up to 7 days to 100% cure

Some darkening or yellowing of the epoxy resin may occur if over exposed to high temperature (>250 F).

AMINE BLUSH

The affinity of an amine compound (curing agent) to moisture and carbon dioxide creates a carbonate compound and forms what is called amine blush.

Amine blush is a wax-like layer that forms as most epoxies cure. If the epoxy system is cured in extreme humidity (>70%).

It will be seen as a white and waxy layer that must be removed by physical sanding of the surface followed by an acetone wipe.

Although we have formulated the MAX CLR, MAX BOND and MAX GPE product line to be resistant to amine-blush,

it is recomended not to mix any resin systems in high humidity conditions, greater than 70%.

Always make sure that the substrate or material the epoxy resin system is being applied to

is as dry as possible to insure the best cured performance.


OTHER TYPES OF EPOXY RESIN CURE MECHANISM

LATENT CURING SYSTEMS

Latent epoxy resins are systems that are mixed together at room temperature and will begin polymerization but it will not achieve full cure unless it is exposed to a heat cure cycle. In general, these are high performance systems that demonstrate exceptional performance under extreme conditions such as high mechanical performance under heat and cryogenics temperatures, chemical resistance or any environment that epoxy room temperature system perform marginally or poorly.

Upon the mixing of the resin and curing agent polymerization will begin and will only achieve partial cure. Some resins may appear cured or dry to the touch, this state is called 'B-Stage Cure' ,but upon application of force will either be gummy or brittle almost glass-like and will dissolve in most solvents. The semi-cured resin must be exposed to an elevated temperature for it to continue polymerization and achieve full cure.


HEAT ACTIVATED CURING SYSTEMS

This type of epoxy system will not polymerized unless it is exposed to the activation temperature of the curing agent which can be as low as 200F and as high as 400F. In most instances these epoxy system can be stored at room temperature and remain liquid for up to six months and longer

USE AN INFRARED HEAT LAMP FOR LARGER PARTS IF A PROCESS OVEN IS NOT AVAILABLE


UV CURINGSYSTEMS

Similar to "addition cure" or catalytic polymerization, Ultraviolet Curing is another method that has gained popular use in the polymer adhesives and coatings application. It offers a unique curing mechanism that converts a liquid polymer into a solid plastic upon exposure to UV radiation. The two common commercially significant method are "FREE RADICAL INITIATION" and CATIONIC REACTION. In both reaction polymerization occurs via decomposition of a Photoiniator blended within the resin system; upon exposure to adequate wavelength of Ultraviolet energy the photoinitator degrades and casue a ring opening or cleaveage of the photoinitiator molecule and induces rapid polymerization or crosslinking. These species can be either free radical or cationic and occurs almost instantaneous creation of a polymer network.

POSSIBLE HEAT CURING TECHNIQUES

If an oven is not available to provide the needed thermal post cure, exposing the assemble part to direct solar heat

(sun exposure) for a period will provide enough heat cure for the part to be handled.

Other heat curing such as infrared heat lamps can be used if a heat chamber or oven is not available.


MAX CLR is a versatile, tough and resilient epoxy resin that can be used for many other applications such as:

MAX CLR can be machined, milled, drilled and tapped using hand tools or precision machines. Machining marks can be polished using traditional polishing techniques

Just measure out two parts Part A to one part Part B, mix and apply and allow to cure overnight. It has a 45-minute working time and can be handled in 6 hours. Handling strength will develop in 10 hours of room temperature curing and will fully cure within 24 to 36 hours. Heat curing is also ideal for a faster cure time. The mixed consistency is similar to a very light syrup (800 cPs).

Included with every kit is a copy of MSDS, DATA SHEET and our Comprehensive "Surface Preparation and Applications Bulletin" which contains a wealth of information high performance bonding technology.

For Bonding Applications

To insure a strong bond, items or substrates to be bonded must be clean and free from contaminants such dust, grease, oils and other foreign materials. Please refer to our Surface Preparation Bulletin for suggested surface cleaning method And Proper Bonding Techniques.

Apply via brush or roller coat properly mixed resin on both substrates and clamp or apply adequate pressure so that a thin bondline is achieved, approximately .003 to .007 inch minimum bondline thickness. Allow to cure for 24 hours before handling.

Clean up excess resin run off before it has a chance to set-up using a rag dampen with acetone or MEK.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO MEASURE, MIX, DISPENSE OR APPLY ANY OF OUR MAX EPOXY RESIN IN ONE CONVENIENT KIT

Proportioning the correct amount is equally as important to attain the intended cured properties of the resin system. 

         The container in which the epoxy and curing agent is mixed is an important consideration when mixing an epoxy resin system.

The container must withstand the tenacity of the chemical and must be free of contamination.

Most epoxy curing agent has a degree of corrosivity, as a general practice, protective gloves should be worn when handling chemicals of the same nature.
