Impact Resistance Enhancement by Adding Core-Shell Particle to Epoxy Resin Modified with Hyperbranched Polymer
AbstractA core-shell particle was fabricated by grafting amino-terminated hyperbranched polymer to the surface of silica nanoparticles. The influences of core-shell particle contents on the tensile and impact strength of the epoxy thermosets modified with amino-terminated hyperbranched polymer were discussed in detail. For comparison, core-shell particle was added into the epoxy/polyamide system for toughness improvement. Results from tensile and impact tests are provided. The introduction of core-shell particle into the epoxy/polyamide systems just slightly enhanced the tensile and impact strength. The incorporation of 3 wt % core-shell particle could substantially improve the tensile and impact strength of epoxy/amino-terminated hyperbranched polymer thermosets. Field emission-scanning electron microscope images of the impact fracture surfaces showed that the excellent impact resistance of epoxy/amino-terminated hyperbranched polymer/core-shell particle thermosets may be attributed to the synergistic effect of shearing deformation and crack pinning/propagation, which is induced by the good compatibility between epoxy matrix and core-shell particle in the presence of amino-terminated hyperbranched polymer.
