epoxy resin


The main physical-mechanical and thermophysical characteristics of composite materials based on epoxy resin ED-20 and peroxide resin ED-20P (modified with tert-butyl hydroperoxide ED-20 of a molecular weight 480) in the ratio of 30 mass parts of ED-20P to 70 mass parts of ED-20 and unsaturated oligoester TGM-3 were researched. Butyl methacrylate was used as the active diluent of epoxy-oligoester mixtures. The polyethylene polyamine was used as hardener in a steochemical ratio. For the comparison we studied compositions which did not contain ED-20P resin.


In the food industry and public catering establishments of Ukraine, a sufficiently large amount of oil is left, which was first used during the roasting and cooking of various food, such as vegetables and fish during canning, french fries, pancakes, pies and the like. At high temperatures during contact with the food and moisture contained in it, the processes of thermal decomposition, oxidation, polymerization and so on, the oil accumulates harmful to man substances such as aldehydes, acids, ketenes, polycyclic compounds, etc. In this case, the oil becomes unsuitable for further food use.

Epoxy Composites Filled with Natural Calcium Carbonate. 1. Epoxy Composites Obtained in the Presence of Monoperoxy Derivative of Epidian-6 Epoxy Resin

Physico-mechanical properties of the products based on filled epoxy-oligomeric mixtures composed of Epidian-5 epoxy resin, oligoesteracrylate TGM-3 and monoperoxide derivative of Epidian-6 epoxy resin (PO) have been investigated. CaCO3 was used as a filler and polyethylene polyamine was a curing agent. The effect of PO and CaCO3 on the gel-fraction content and physico-mechanical properties was examined. Using a scanning electron microscopy (SEM) the morphology of the samples has been studied.

Synthesis Mechanism and Properties of Epoxy Resins Modified with Adipic Acid

The mechanism of diepoxide and adipic acid (AA) reaction in the presence of benzyltriethylammonium chloride and 1,4-diazobicyclo[2,2,2] octane has been proposed. The thermal stability of the oligoester obtained via chemical modification of the dioxydiphenylpropane diglycidyl ether with AA and epoxy-oligoesteric mixtures with its participation has been studied. The viscoelastic properties of films based on epoxy-oligoesteric mixtures containing Epidian-5 epoxy resin, TGM-3 oligoesteracrylate, AA modified Epidian-5 and polyethylpolyamine have been determined.

Viscoelastic Properties of Amine-Cured Epoxy-Titania Composites Obtained by the Sol-Gel Method

Viscoelastic properties of amine-cured epoxytitania composites were investigated. The composites were synthesized by the sol-gel method and analysis of their physico-mechanical properties indicated that higher TiO2 content causes the decrease in glass transition temperature of the composites. Non-linear change of crosslink density with a filler content was observed.

Structuring of epoxy-oligoester compositions in the presence of peroxidated epoxy resin.

In order to improve the properties of epoxy resins they are modified by the various compounds, in particular oligoesters. Compositions based on ED-20 epoxy resin and unsaturated oligoesters are structured in the presence of polyethylene polyamine (PEPA). The oligoester acts as a plasticizer that is not chemically bounded to the molecules of spatially crosslinked structure. It leads to the deterioration of their physical, mechanical and chemical properties during the working process of film based on epoxy-oligoester compositions.

Polymer-silicate composites with modified minerals

New polymer composites on the basis of epoxy resin and different fine dispersed mineral powders (andesite, bentonite, diatomite, liquid glass and quartz sand) were obtained and their mechanical (ultimate strength), thermal (temperature dependence of the softening) and water absorption properties were investigated. It was established that all properties of these materials were essentially improved, when the same fillers modified by tetraetoxysilane (TEOS) were used.

Crosslinking of epoxy-oligoesteric mixtures in the presence of dioxydiphenylpropane diglycidyl ether modified with adipic acid

Crosslinking of epoxy-oligoesteric mixtures composed of ED-20 dianic epoxy resin and TGM-3 oligoesteracrylate has been studied in the presence of dioxydiphenylpropane diglycidyl ether modified with adipic acid (DCDER). Crosslinking was carried out at room temperature and while heating at 383, 403 or 423 K using polyethylene polyamine as a hardener. The procedure of DCDER synthesis has been developed. The structural changes were controlled by determining film hardness and gel-fraction content. The chemistry of films formation was confirmed by IR-spectroscopy. 

Preparation and properties of (epoxy resin)/(nylon 6,6 oligomer) blends

A series of polymer alloys based on different compositions of Nylon 6,6 oligomers (NYL66Oґs) and epoxy resin have been prepared. The oligomer was extracted from the waste residues of the industrial production of nylon 6,6 and was dissolved in the epoxy resin. The mixture was crosslinked at 333 K using dodecenylsuccinic anhydre (DDSA) as a curing agent. The tensile strength and flexural modulus were found to increase with the addition of NYLO66O up to a maximum value of 2 wt % oligomer content.

Studies on cardanol-based epoxidized novolac resin and its blends

Cardanol-based novolac-type phenolic resin was synthesized with a mole ratio 1.0:0.5 of cardanol-to-formaldehyde using a dicarboxylic acid catalyst such as succinic acid. The cardanol-based novolac-type phenolic resin may further be modified by epoxidation with epichlorohydrin excess at 393 K in a basic medium to duplicate the performance of such phenolic-type novolacs. Carboxyl-terminated butadiene acrylonitrile copolymer (CTBN) has been studied by various researches with diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A (DEGBA) epoxy resin and epoxidized phenolic novolac resins.
