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 pressure loading. Its behavior during and after the impact strike can define its maximum mechanical property and the fabricator can establish the conditional limits of the fabricated part.

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, the fabricator can determine the design equilibrium and ultimate performance by careful analysis of the material’s disassociation and the manner of its destruction.

THE FOLLOWING VIDEO DEMONSTRATES HOW THERMO-SET RESINS CAN REACT WHEN MIXED IN LARGE MASS AND ALLOWED TO REACT IN A CONFINED CONTAINER.


COLD TEMPERATURE NOTICE

DURING THE COLDER SEASONS THE RESIN AND CURING AGENT SHOULD BE WARMED TO AT LEAST 75°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C) PRIOR TO USE TO REDUCE ITS VISCOSITY, REDUCE AIR BUBBLE ENTRAPMENT, MAINTAIN ITS WORKING TIME AND INSURE PROPER CURE. IN SOME CASES THE RESIN OR PART A MAY APPEAR TO BE CLOUDY OR SOLIDIFIED, WHICH IS AN INDICATION OF  RESIN CRYSTALLIZATION.

THE COLD TEMPERATURE EXPOSURE CAN OCCUR DURING TRANSPORT OR DELIVERY OF THE KIT WERE THE PACKAGE CAN BE EXPOSED TO TEMPERATURES BELOW 50°F AND INITIATE THE RESIN TO CRYSTALLIZE OR DEVELOP SEED CRYSTALS. ONCE A SEED CRYSTAL DEVELOPS, CRYSTALLIZATION WILL OCCUR EVEN IF STORED AT THE PROPER STORAGE TEMPERATURE. DO NOT THROW AWAY OR USE THE RESIN UNTIL IT HAS BEEN MELTED BACK TO A FREE-FLOWING LIQUID PHASE BY GENTLE HEATING 120°F TO 150°F.

THE HIGH PURITY EPOXY COMPONENT AND THE ABSENCE OF ANY ACCELERATORS AND OTHER NON-REACTIVE IMPURITIES IN ITS FORMULATION ARE SOME OF THE MANY KEY FACTORS THAT CONTROLS ITS HIGH PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES. 

THE COLD TEMPERATURE WILL ALSO MAKE THE RESIN MUCH THICKER THAN THE STATED VISCOSITY AND WORKING TIME VALUES AS STATED ON THE PHYSICAL TABLES CHART. THIS WILL REDUCE THE POLYMER'S REACTION RATE AND EXTEND ITS CURE TIME. THIS CAN RECTIFIED BY PRE-WARMING BOTH COMPONENT AND USING THE MIXED RESIN IN A CONTROLLED TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENT NO COOLER THAN 70°F .

PLACE CURSOR OVER THE SLIDESHOW TO PAUSE OR PLAY

TO MELT THE CRYSTALLIZED RESIN FASTER HIGHER PROCESSING TEMPERATURE CAN BE UTILIZED BY PLACING IT IN A PLASTIC BAG OR MAKE SURE THAT THE LID IS SECURE TO PREVENT WATER FROM ENTERING THE CONTAINER AND IMMERSE IT IN HOT WATER , 140°F TO 180°F UNTIL ALL TRACES OF THE CRYSTALLIZED RESIN IS ONCE AGAIN A CLEAR LIQUID. THE CONTAINER CAN WITHSTAND 212°F (BOILING POINT OF WATER); THE RESIN SHOULD REVERT BACK INTO A LIQUID IN LESS THAN 20 MINUTES.

ALLOW THE RESIN TO COOL BELOW 80°F BEFORE ADDING THE CURING AGENT. A POLYMER RESIN'S PHYSICAL PROPERTY SUCH AS ITS VISCOSITY AND CURE RATE ARE HIGHLY AFFECTED BY TEMPERATURE. MIXING THE RESIN AND CURING AGENT ABOVE 80°F AS IT WILL CAUSE RAPID POLYMERIZATION AND HIGH EXOTHERMIC HEAT BUILDUP THAT CAN EXCEED 300°F EXOTHERMIC HEAT WHEN KEPT IN MASS. DO NOT HEAT AND MIX THE RESIN OR CURING AGENT BEYOND 90°F AS IT MAY CAUSE RAPID AND UNCONTROLLABLE REACTION. THE BEST WORKING CONDITION IS TO PREWARM THE RESIN AND CURING AGENT TO 70°F TO 75°F PRIOR TO MIXING AND ALLOW IT TO CURE AT AN AMBIENT TEMPERATURE NO LOWER THAN 65°F FOR AT LEAST 24 HOURS.

Usage And Applications Instructions

When choosing laminating resins, it is important that the formulation is 100% reactive, meaning that it contains very little no plasticizers and solvents that other formulators use to lower the viscosity of the resin system..

Plasticizers and solvents are also used as liquid fillers to reduce the cost but sacrificing overall cured performance. Our MAX CLR is formulated with 100% reactive, high purity grade epoxy resin and a specially 

formulated curing agent, giving it the best performance compared to our competitors. We have sold thousands of pounds of our MAX CLR formulations to many composite manufacturers.

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

  • Marine and Aircraft Composite Fabrication

  • Hobby and Crafts Adhesive/Coating

  • Protective and Decorative Coatings

  • Electronic Potting, Insulating, Encapsulating

  • Clear Plastic Laminating

  • Swimming Pool Coatings

  • Potable Water Tank Lining

  • Clear Penetrating Gel Coat Repair For Sealing Cracks

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.

Composite Fabricating Basics

By resolute definition, a fabricated COMPOSITE material is a manufactured collection of two or more ingredients or products intentionally combined to form a new homogeneous compound that is defined by its performance that should uniquely greater than the sum of its individual parts. This principle is also defined as SYNERGISTIC COMPOSITION.

STRUCTURAL STRENGTH COMPOSITE LAMINATE

With respect to the raw materials selection(fabric and resin), the fabricating process and the intended composite properties,

these 3 aspects must be carefully considered and in the engineering phase of the composite.

The following are some of the basic steps and guidelines for consideration.

Step One: Fabric Selection

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 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 over saturated 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.

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

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

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

50 PHR (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 volatile 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) for 45 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 recommended 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 CURING SYSTEMS

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 cause a ring opening or cleavage of the photoinitiator molecule and induces rapid polymerization or cross-linking. 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.

DON'T FORGET OUR 

EPOXY MIXING KIT


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.
