Abstract

The production process of the PDR 100 epoxy glass based laminate, as developed by Philips, Holland, produced laboratory results which, with appropriate modifications, were applied by MAS SpA to achieve successful production of a laminate with proven consistency of quality. Industrial tests were carried out on material of varying thickness. The preparation of the resin mix, which differed in composition from that used by the Philips pilot plant, is described in detail, followed by the impregnation process, with emphasis on the precautionary measures necessary. The processes of pressing and finishing of the laminates are discussed, the emphasis again being on the prevention of contamination. The presence of titanium dioxide in the epoxy resin is fully explained and details are given of two technological processes of impregnation. The paper concludes with a summary of the typical properties and characteristics of the PDR laminates.

Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to report the effect of titanium oxide (TiO2) particles on the physical, mechanical, tribological and water resistance properties of 5% NaOH-treated bamboo fiber–reinforced composites.

Design/methodology/approach

In this research, the epoxy/bamboo/TiO2 hybrid composite filled with 0–8 Wt.% TiO2 particles has been fabricated using simple hand layup techniques, and testing of the developed composite was done in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard.

Findings

The results of this study indicate that the addition of TiO2 particles improved the mechanical properties of the developed epoxy/bamboo composites. Tensile properties were found to be maximum for 6 Wt.%, and impact strength was found to be maximum for 8 Wt.% TiO2 particles-filled composite. The highest flexural properties were found at a lower TiO2 fraction of 2 Wt.%. Adding TiO2 filler helped to reduce the water absorption rate. The studies related to the wear and friction behavior of the composite under dry and abrasive wear conditions reveal that TiO2 filler was beneficial in improving the wear performance of the composite.

Originality/value

This research paper attempts to include both TiO2 filler and bamboo fibers to develop a novel composite material. TiO2 micro and nanoparticles are promising filler materials; it helps to enhance the mechanical and tribological properties of the epoxy composites and in literature, there is not much work reported, where TiO2 is used as a filler material with bamboo fiber–reinforced epoxy composites.
