Nanoparticle Filtration in a Rtm Processed Epoxy/carbon Fiber Composite


Several epoxy matrix composite panels were fabricated by resin transfer molding E862/W resin onto a triaxially braided carbon fiber pre-form. Nanoparticles including carbon nanofiber, synthetic clay, and functionalized graphite were dispersed in the E862 matrix, and the extent of particle filtration during processing was characterized.
