Fillers and Pigments

  • R. G. Weatherhead


Although fibre reinforced materials primarily comprise a resin system plus a fibrous reinforcement, other components are frequently added to produce decorative effects, aid handling, improve moulding characteristics and cured properties. These materials include fillers, pigments, thixotropic additives and fire retardant additives, all of which are dealt with in this chapter. Other additives such as internal lubricants, light stabilisers and core materials are dealt with in Chapter 17.
