Characteristic Studies on Thin Films of Epoxy resin in Organic SolventAuthor(s): Kumari MVL, Kaviarasi A, Anandhavadivel A and Prabakaran AR
Epoxy resin in organic solvent is cured and thin films are prepared by solvent evaporation method. In the present work, the said organic solvent is used as curing agent in the sample. Both the concentration of polymer as well as curing agent is varied in wt/wt ratio and films are prepared for FTIR spectroscopic response. The FTIR observation of title compound confirms functional groups and the role of curing agent. Dielectric studies are carried out at different temperatures. Mechanical studies are also performed on the sample which confirms the toughness, textural and tensile strengths.
