It has been reported that the incorporation of nanofillers such as multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs), fullerenes, and nanoclay into the resin matrix
can significantly increase the shear strength, flexural strength, and fracture toughness of the glass fiber and carbon fiber reinforced composites [6-14] Thakre et al.
The process combines a nylon 6 resin matrix
with a mat of chopped carbon fibers (approx.
In sample with the addition of 1% and 1.5% E-glass fiber showed voids or porosity on resin matrix
, inadequate E-glass fiber impregnation and un-equally distribution of E-glass fibers to resin matrix

," Yan Zhu, Gordon Emmerson, Yen-Seine Wang, Maureen Boyle, and Jessica Leandro (Hexcel Corp., Dublin, Calif.)
Although dental composites are continuously developing, these materials still typically consist of a methacrylate-based resin matrix
, glass or ceramic fillers and a filler-matrix coupling agent (1).
Polyethylene or glass fibers are generally used to support the resin matrix
in FRC bridges.
Teplo wall ties are manufactured from continuous basalt fibres set in a resin matrix
; a fibre-reinforced polymer that is 70 times more thermally efficient than steel.
This volumetric Shrinkage causes marginal gap formation resulting in post operative sensitivity, marginal discoloration, secondary caries and breakdown at tooth-restoration interface.1 To avoid these clinical complications, modifications in resin matrix
resulted in development of another monomer system, based on cationic ring opening polymerization of silorane monomers.2
Preparation of Experimental Resin Matrix
. The photocurable resin matrix
was a mixture of bisphenol A glycerolate dimethacrylate (BisGMA), triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA) (Sigma-Aldrich Co., St.
Meanwhile, the pore structure characteristic of the coal mass and abundant groups on the margin of the coal molecule are easier to modify than other mineral fillers, which are favorable for improving the compatibility and dispersivity between the coal mass and the resin matrix
For the epoxy resin, a curing agent and diluent were mixed according to a predetermined proportion, thus forming a liquid epoxy resin matrix
. Basalt fiber was then added, and the mixture was stirred for two minutes.
In order to get the temperature dependence of IFSS, a microbond test was performed under controlled temperature; thermomechanical property tests were performed to get the Tg and the CLTE of resin matrix
; tensile test was performed to measure the value of modulus changed with temperature.
