Increasing Reinforcing Glass Fabric Impregnability by Using Adhesives
The possibility of increasing the anhydride epoxy bonding agent impregnability of glass fabric, made from aluminum borosilicate glass, by introducing adhesives into the serially produced lubricant 4s is studied. A wide range of wetting agents, produced by different global manufacturers for fiber and organosilicon coupling agents, was tested by determining the bonding agent impregnability over the height in a capillary. The impregnability of reinforcing glass fabric was increased considerably by improving the lubricant as well as counter-modification of the bonding agent.
