Mode I and mode II delamination properties of glass/vinyl-ester composite toughened by particulate modified interlayers
Various vinyl-ester (VE)/poly(acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) (ABS) blends were used for interlayer-toughening of a glass/VE composite to increase delamination resistance of the base material under mode I and mode II loading. Dry ABS powder was mixed with the liquid resin in four weight ratios: 3.5, 7, 11 and 15 phr (parts per hundred parts of resin) while the layer thickness was varied within the range of 150-500 μm. Firstly, mode I fracture toughness and tensile properties of the VE/ABS...[Show more]
