Interacting blends of styrenated unsaturated Poly(ester-amide)s with commercial unsaturated polyester resin (Iso-phthalic acid based)


Author(s): Nirmit N Patel, Bhaumik M Patel

Abstract: Unsaturated poly(ester-amide)s resins (UPEAs) were prepared by the reaction between an epoxy resin (DGEBA) and unsaturated bisamic acids (B1-6) using a base catalyst. These UPEAs were then diluted by styrene and blended with commercial unsaturated polyester resin (Iso-phthalic acid based) to produce a homogeneous resin. The curing of these blends was carried out using Benzoyl peroxide (BPO) as a catalyst and N,N’-Dimethyl aniline (DMA) as a promoter. The glass fiber reinforced composites (i.e. laminates) of these Styrenated UPEAs-UPR (Iso-phthalic acid based) blends were fabricated. The mechanical and chemical properties of the glass fiber composites have also been evaluated. The unreinforced cured samples of the SUPEAs-UPR (Iso-phthalic acid based) blends were also analyzed by thermogravimetry (TGA).
