Abstract : This study of the nature of the interfaces in reinforced plastics provided physical chemical evidence which supports postulated covalent bonding mechanisms at glass-coupling agent-resin interfaces. These conclusions were derived from studies of the interactions of monofunctional silanes and silane coupling agents with E-glass, aerosil, and polymethylmethacrylate surfaces. Experimental methods employed were radiochemical tracer techniques, electron microscopy, and calorimetric heats of immersion. (Author)
