A Study on the Comparison between Different Matrixes Used for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Core
The comparison between carbon fiber reinforced different matrixes composites was studied in this work. Carbon fiber reinforced phenolic resin composite and carbon fiber reinforced benzoxazine resin composite were made by pultrusion processing. Bending strength test and charpy impact strength test were taken to characterize the toughness of different composites, and scanning electronic micro-scopy(SEM) was applied to evaluate the interfacial properties between carbon fiber and different matrixes. It was shown that compared with carbon fiber reinforced phenolic composite, carbon fiber reinforced benzoxazine composite had better performance in toughness and interfacial property. Bending strength and toughness were mainly depending on the property of matrixes, interfacial property was determined by carbon fiber and matrixes.
