Thermostimulated Creep Study of the Interface of Glass Bead-Reinforced Epoxy Composites
The anelastic behavior of two different types of model composites is studied using the thermostimulated creep. This original method has a high resolving power and gives us accurate information about the distribution of the relaxation times in the matrix of an epoxy resin reinforced with glass beads having on their surface either a coupling agent like a silane or a releasing agent like silicone. From the analysis of spectra, we propose two different mechanisms to explain the reinforcement process through a modification of the matrix at its interface with the filler.
