Abstract

Epoxy is toughened with acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer and composites are developed using varying weight fractions of waste silk fabric as reinforcement. Properties, such as density, void content, and weight reduction of the composites developed are studied and compared to that of pure epoxy/silk fabric composites. A chemical resistance test of these toughened resin composites is also carried out. This revealed that toughening the matrix used for composites enhances the resistance of the composites.
