Abstract

We have recently reported the development of a method which allows the measurement of IFSS over a wide temperature range [6,7]. In this paper we present data obtained using the microbond test in the temperature controlled environment of a thermo-mechanical analyser (TMA). IFSS in glass fibre–polypropylene and glass fibre-epoxy systems in the temperature range -40°C to 150°C are presented and discussed.
