Properties of UV Cured Filament Wound Composites


Composites are generally cured at elevated temperature for relatively short periods of time, or at ambient temperature for longer periods of time, or through some combination of the above. Employing Ultraviolet (UV) energy to cure composites offers a faster, lower energy use alternative to current composite manufacturing processes. In previous presentations at CAMX and ACMA, the advantages of UV curable composites was described and property data (viscosity, tensile data, Tg, etc.) for various matrix resin blends was presented. In this presentation, we will extend this work to look at the properties of filament wound composites made by a UV curing process. Variables will include resin type (epoxy acrylate, urethane acrylate), photoinitiator type and concentration, part thickness cure energy (time and UV intensity) and their effect on Tg, tensile properties, depth of cure will be determined.
