Measurements of the effects of pure and salt water absorption on the rate-dependent response of an epoxy matrix

Abstract:

The study reports the measured effects of water absorption on an epoxy resin. Epoxy samples were exposed to wet conditioning environments including pure water, NaCl-water solution, and pure water at boiling temperature, measuring absorption as a function of time. Vickers hardness and indentation creep tests were performed and the mechanical response of the material to uniaxial stress was also measured in both compression and tension, at imposed strain rates in the range 0.001–2500 s−1. It was...
