Environmentally Benign Repair of Composites

 

DESCRIPTION:

The objective of this project is to design and evaluate a new class of environmentally benign, low viscosity resins reinforced with nanosize alumina particles.  The use temperature for these resins will be high because of Polymer’s high Tg.  These repair resins will be rheologically engineered for optimum crack filling and stability for repairmen to withstand high loadings, environmental extremes, and service temperatures.
