Nanocalcite-Modified Thermosetting Resins for Fiber-Reinforced Composites: Properties and Applications


The general utility of nanoparticle modification of composite matrix resins requires the ability to implement the technology in formulated resins having property and processing profiles appropriate to specific applications. In this paper several nanocalcite-modified thermoset resins formulated with high particle loadings (ca. 40-60 wt %), yet having low viscosity illustrate a range of matrix properties. Translation of enhanced resin properties to improved composite performance is shown for carbon and glass fiber reinforced composites. The epoxy-based 3MTM Matrix Resins 883X (X=0,1,2,4,5) and phenolic-based 9831 have been developed for low viscosity processes such as vacuum infusion (i.e., VARTM), filament winding, pultrusion, resin transfer molding, and solvent prepregging. Data illustrating the effect of nanoparticle modification on resin properties is presented for various curatives. Improved performance is demonstrated when using these resins in composite applications including fiberglass laminates, carbon fiber drive shafts, composite overwrapped pressure vessels, and dimensionally stable composites.
