Studies on the Influence of Monomers on the Performance Properties of Epoxy Acrylate Resin
Twelve blend samples were prepared by physical mixing of epoxy acrylate resins with various monomers viz. ethoxylated phenol monoacrylate (EOPA), tripropylene glycol diacrylate (TPGDA) and trimethylol propane tri acrylate(TMPTA), having weight ratio of epoxy acrylate resin and monomers are 50:50, 60:40, 70:30, 80:20. These samples were cured under UV radiation using 5% photo initiator by weight. These blends were evaluated for mechanical, chemical & thermal properties. It was found that the sample having mono & tri functional monomers shows better properties than the samples having di functional monomer.
