Abstract:

Two short fiber systems, Hercules HM-S high modulus graphite and DuPonts PRD-49 high strength organic fiber, each in Fiberites X-934 epoxide resin matrix were studied to characterize their mechanical performance potential when compression molded to form random-in-a-plane orientation in a flat bar geometry. The resulting strength and modulus values are discussed.
