Advances in MG Resin Composite and Processing for High Temperature Applications


Continued advances toward the development of new high-temperature resistant, multifunctional polymer systems, with the aim to provide innovative, low-cost materials for high temperature applications are reported. The described material technology results in a suite of polymer systems that transition from a thermoplastic at temperatures below 110 °C, to a thermoset at temperatures above 150 °C, and ultimately to a carbon-like material at higher temperatures. The described polymer systems can be combined with fabric reinforcement using conventional composite processing techniques to create a system that presents the potential for low-cost, high temperature structural materials. Such materials would find wide use in thermal protection systems, hightemperature components for aerospace applications, and in interior components with strict flammability requirements. CRG has generated tensile, flexure, and interlaminar shear data at room temperature and elevated temperatures up to 400 °C. These materials are stable (mass loss in TGA) at temperatures of 500 °C, can exhibit glass transition temperature greater than 500 °C and appear potentially useful for structural applications in the range of 400-500 °C. In addition, flammability studies have been conducted showing that the material performs better than many fluorinated aerospace-grade polyimide materials and is being explored for aircraft interiors and even submarine interior applications where flammability requirements have traditionally limited the use of organic composite materials.
