In this case, PEGDGE and diglycidylether of bisphenol-A (DGEBA) are chosen as a waterborne-type and an oiliness-type epoxy compounds, respectively, to be blended with the liquefied wood, which is compatible with both types of epoxy resins.
We have found that reactions of hydroperoxides with epoxy compounds do not proceed in aprotonic and protophilic solvents.
In epoxy compounds, PPO significantly improves both toughness and electrical properties.
Generally, the modulus of elasticity is increased by increasing the filler amounts; a modifier is used to lower the modulus of elasticity, which can reduce the internal stress of the epoxy compound. Table 2 gives the measured results of the linear expansion ratio at 100 [degrees] C and 200 [degrees] C, i.e., below and above the glass transition temperature (Tg of the epoxy resin; Tg = 150 [degrees] C), because the slope in the plotting of the thermal expansion coefficient is a function of temperature change at the glass transition temperature.
