Abstract

The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of phosphorus-based additive and reactive flame retardants (FR) on the flammability and mechanical properties of neat epoxy resins and carbon fibre reinforced composites made thereof. A pentaerythritol-based model epoxy resin system was used as matrix, cured with cycloaliphatic diamine and reinforced with unidirectional woven carbon fibre fabric. Commercially available ammonium polyphosphate (APP) was used as additive and DOPO as reactive flame retardant. The behaviour of these systems was also compared to a recently synthesized phosphorus containing amine (TEDAP), which can be used both as flame retardant and crosslinking agent.
