Abstract:

Preparation of composite materials which have high strength in compression. Scientific approach is to prepare novel polymeric coupling agents. These will permit formation of multiple flexible covalent bonds between fibers as well as to matrix materials. In addition, these new coupling agents will possess elastomeric properties which may increase matrix toughness to fracture.
