Abstract

Neat and rubber‐toughened epoxy resin systems EPN/BA and EPN/DDS with significantly different crosslink densities and glass transition temperatures were tested under widely different experimental conditions ranging from impact to long‐term loading. The resulting deformation mechanisms were examined in order to ascertain the effects of network structure and toughening modifiers. Different toughening mechanisms were observed in low‐ and high‐crosslink‐density epoxy systems, modified with the same core‐shell rubber particles.
