Study on the Compression Properties of Epoxy Matrix Composites Reinforced by PES Warp-Knitted Spacer Fabric
This research paper presents an experimental investigation on the compression and compressive resilience properties of warp-knitted spacer fabric composites with different resin content and different kinds of resin. By means of hand roller coating technology, four kinds of warp-knitted spacer fabric composites were made. The experiments were tested according to GB/T1453-2005 and ISO3386/2:1984. It is shown that the resin content and resin type seriously affect the compression and compressive resilience properties of warp-knitted spacer fabric composite. The data indicated that when the warp-knitted spacer fabric composite coated with the same kind of resin, with increasing resin content the elastic modulus added and the compressive resilience decreased. Having the same resin content, the compression properties of pacer fabric composite increase with the increase of flexural strength of resin; while the compressive resilience decrease.
