Chemical and mechanical properties of vinyl-ester/ABS blends

Stevanovic, Dejan; Lowe, Adrian; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar; Jar, P-Yue; Otieno-Alego, Vincent


Various experimental techniques and finite element modelling (FEM) were employed to assess mechanical and chemical properties of vinyl-ester (VE)/poly(acrylonitrile-butadiene -styrene) (ABS) blends with different ABS particle content. The blends were to be used as a toughening agent for interlayer toughened VE/glass composite material. Firstly, the materials' fracture toughness and tensile properties were examined, the results showing excellent toughening potential of the blends as well as a...[Show more]
