Abstract

The effect of liquid crystalline epoxy (LCE) resin on the curing behavior and thermomechanical properties of diglycidylether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) was investigated. LCE was blended with DGEBA and curing behavior of the blend was studied according to LCE content in the blend. Curing of DGEBA was accelerated and thermomechanical properties of DGEBA were considerably improved by the addition of LCE, which acted as a molecular reinforcement. © 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
