Investigation of the Effect of Electron Beam Radiation on Carbon Fiber / Polyamide-6,6 and Carbon Fiber / Polyamide-6 Composites
The aim of this work was to investigate the effect of electron beam radiation on carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites, with polyamide-6,6 (PA66) and polyamide-6 (PA6) as matrix. In order to achieve a matrix cross-linking after irradiation a cross-linking agent was incorporated into the polymer.Further experiments were conducted using additional nanoclay in the matrix material. After irradiation, important changes in the thermal properties and in the creep behavior were measured.
