Abstract : The objectives of this program are to synthesize and evaluate imide modified epoxy resins cured with novel bisimide amine hardeners in an effort to develop resins with improved toughness characteristics for use as matrix resins in high performance fiber-reinforced composites. The goal is to achieve resins having a twofold increase of the proportional limit strain compared to state-of-the-art epoxy resins. Three wholly aromatic bisimide amines and one aromatic-aliphatic BIA were evaluated. jg p7
