Abstract

Epoxy systems EPN/BA and EPN/DDS having significantly different cross-link densities have been modified using core-shell rubber particles. The toughening mechanisms have been investigated and the results show that cavitation and particle-matrix debonding play different roles in the low and high cross-link density epoxy resins.
