The effect of ultraviolet (UV) light postcuring on resin hardness and interlaminar shear strength of a glass-fibre/vinylester composite

Compston, Paul; Dexter, David

Description

A study was conducted to find the preliminary results on the potential of ultraviolet (UV) light postcuring to increase the properties of bulk vinylester resin and a glass-fiber/vinylester composite. Experimental work on resin hardness and composite interlaminar shear strength was conducted with samples formulated for room temperature cure and UV postcure. The resin hardness and the composite interlaminar shear results indicate that UV postcuring can increase resin cure and improve composite...[Show more]
