The creep and recovery of 5% carboxyl-terminated butadiene acrylonitrile (CTBN) modified epoxy shape memory polymers (SMP) was studied. The results were compared with those for the unmodified epoxy SMP. The glass transition temperatures (Tg) were determined using Advanced Rheometric Expansion System (ARES). The creep behavior of the unmodified epoxy and 5wt.% CTBN modified epoxy SMP were studied through short-term tensile creep test. These tests were carried out at different temperatures… CONTINUE READING
