Effect of Water Temperature on Interfacial Shear Strength of Resin Particles Added CFRTP
In this study, interfacial shear strength of resin particles added carbon fiber/maleic acid anhydride grafted polypropylene under water temperature was investigated. Water temperature range was from room temperature to 80 oC. The maximum immersion time was 24 hours. Micro debonding tests of non and resin particles added composites were conducted. Fracture surface of resin particles added composite were observed by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). As a result, interfacial shear strengths of non particles added composite monotonously decreased with an increase of water temperature. Interfacial shear strength of resin particles added composite was higher than that of non resin particles added composite under all water temperatures except for 50 oC. From SEM observation, large resin particles on surface of carbon fiber after water immersion at 50 oC were found. And, many matrices and large resin particles on surface of carbon fiber after water immersion at 80 oC were found. Therefore, interfacial shear strength of composite was improved because resin particle addition prevented water penetration into the interface between fiber and matrix under water immersion less than 50 oC. And, interfacial shear strength of composite was probably improved by anchor effect of resin particle under water immersion at 80 oC.
