Performance of Modified Epoxy Resin by Inorganic Packing
We filled different proportions of inorganic packing(nano-silica) in the epoxy resin and investigated the flexural properties of modified epoxy resin compared with pure epoxy resin, based on the mechanics experiments using Zwick/Roell equipment. The experimental results showed the performance of modified epoxy resin by proper proportions of inorganic packing increased significantly compared with pure epoxy resin, but excessive inorganic packing had no help in improving the performance of epoxy resin and even cause some decline of the properties.
