Abstract This review presents various types of epoxy resins and curing agents commonly used as composite matrices. A brief review of cross-linking formation and the process of degradation or decomposition of epoxy resins by pyrolysis and solvolysis is also discussed. Mechanical engineers are given a brief overview of the types of epoxy resin, which are often applied as composite matrices considering that they currently play a large role in the research, design, manufacturing, and recycling of… 
Adhesive and Impact-Peel Strength Improvement of Epoxy Resins Modified with Mono and Diamine Functionalized Elastomers
Epoxy resins are widely applied in the automotive and electronic industries. However, pure epoxy resins are brittle and thus possess poor mechanical properties. Herein, we report a facile method for
A review on recent advances on the mechanical and conductivity properties of epoxy nanocomposites for industrial applications
In recent years, epoxy composites have been found as a great composite material in the design and fabrication of parts for industrial applications, owing to their cost-effectiveness, ease of
Life-Cycle Analysis and Evaluation of Mechanical Properties of a Bio-Based Structural Adhesive
For this present paper, we performed a life-cycle analysis and an evaluation of the mechanical properties of an epichlorohydrin/cardanol adhesive in a neat and a nano-filled form. Six different
Quasi-Static Flexural Behavior of Epoxy-Matrix-Reinforced Crump Rubber Composites
Waste tires have emerged as a severe environmental threat worldwide as they create a number of disposal and landfill burden issues. In the present study, environmental pollutant crump rubber derived
Ultrafast Nonvolatile Ionic Liquids-Based Supercapacitors with Al Foam-Enhanced Carbon Electrode.
The results suggest that, although ILs have high viscosity and low ion mobility, the IL-based supercapacitor has a great potential to be used as a device for alternating current line filtering, as well as providing nonvolatile and nonflammability safety.
Influence of fillers on epoxy resins properties: a review
Epoxy resins (ERs) are one of the main types of resins used as structural adhesives; however, they present some weakness, which are mostly related to their highly cross-linked network after the


Synthesis and application of epoxy resins: A review
Applications of FTIR on Epoxy Resins - Identification, Monitoring the Curing Process, Phase Separation and Water Uptake
Epoxy resins are a family of thermosetting materials widely used as adhesives, coatings and matrices in polymer composites because of the low viscosity of the formulations, good insulating properties
Composite materials based on modified epoxy resin and carbon fiber
Epoxy resin networks have been modified with block copolymer of polybutadiene and bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (DGEBA)-based on epoxy resin. The epoxy resin modified with carboxyl-terminated
Introduction to the chemistry, synthesis, manufacture and characterization of epoxy resins
The term ‘epoxy resin’ is applied to both the prepolymers and to the cured resins; the former contain reactive epoxy groups, Open image in new window , hence their name. In the cured resins all of

Carbon fi ber reinforced polymer matrix composites have been the focus of research. As the most widely used epoxyresin in all matrix materials, it is also the most studied. In this paper, the
Structure-property relations of epoxies used as composite matrices
The structure-deformation/failure process-mechanical property relations of epoxies used as matrices in high performance fibrous composites are presented. Such composites are fabricated either from
Flexibility improvement of epoxy resin by chemical modification
Epoxy resin was chemically modified with carboxyl-terminated poly(ethylene glycol) adipate (CTPEGA) and the modified epoxy networks were made by curing with an ambient-temperature hardener. The
Method of Recovering the Fibrous Fraction of Glass/Epoxy Composites
This study reports the method of recovery of glass fibers from glass/epoxy composites through the solvent method. It is possible to decompose epoxy resin with a yield of more than 99 wt% soluble
