The Effect of Physical Properties on the Interfacial Adhesion of Fiber Reinforced Resin Composites
The effect of physical properties on the interfacial adhesion properties of fiber reinforced nylon66 composites have been investigated in this paper. The microstructure of fibers was observed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and energy dispersive X-ray (EDX). The results revealed that smooth sizing with some tiny and uniform protuberances can enlarge the surface area of the glass fiber, and increased the wettability of resin to glass fiber, so as to increase the interfacial adhesion properties of the glass fiber/resin composites. In addition, the properties of the intheface between glass fiber and composites have been studied by interfacial shear strength (IFSS) and dynamic wetting method.
