Improved Interfacial Adhesion and Manufacturing Method of Glass Fiber/P- Dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) Composites Using Ru Catalyst in Air Condition
Effects on various reinforcement parameters in glass fiber (GF)/poly dicyclopentadiene (p-DCPD) composites were studied to produce high performance composites, especially at low temperature. These parameters are composed of different GF, type, adding concentration, and surface treatment. Length of GF was made by high mechanical property of composites. Optimum length, concentration and type of GF were observed to give the maximum mechanical and impact properties. Interfacial condition of GF in p-DCPD matrix was affected by norbornene functional silane using mechanical measurement with different fiber type. Optimum condition of GF/p-DCPD composite for high mechanical property was 20 wt%, H-GF, 100 mm condition. It can be because 100mm GF can be arranged in matrix to good mobility and 20 wt% GF/p-DCPD had low entanglement between GFs in matrix. Norbornene treated GF had good occurred reaction of p-DCPD between GF due to norbonene group was similar to p-DCPD matrix. It was possible to reaction between GF and p-DCPD matrix.
