DEVELOPMENT, CHARACTERISATION AND UTILISATION OF NOVEL MODIFIED AMORPHOUS POLYAROMATICS FOR USE AS COMPOSITE MATRICES

Objective

The overall aim is to develop new, high performance composites based on amorphous thermoplastic precursors, with advantages over state-of-the-art composites.

New polymers for composites will be developed aimed at achieving, for example, advantages over semi-crystalline polyaromatics in terms of prepreg costs, upper use-temperature, quicker fabrication and easier bonding. Possible advantages over amorphous polyaromatics will be in areas of solvent resistance, creep and modulus beyond Tg.
