Abstract

Toray M40 graphite fiber / Epon 828 epoxy resin single fiber composites with both sized and unsized fibers were exposed to distilled water at 50°C and 100°C, 10% NaOH and HCl aqueous solutions at 50°C, and air at 100°C. Micro Raman spectroscopy was used to measure the strain and interfacial shear stress profiles as a function of environmental exposure. It was found that the degradation mechanism is primarily a mechanical failure of the fiber/matrix interface.
