Learn how a composite is bonded together also affects where it is used and how it is made.
- [Instructor] The matrix, basically, is the resin,…which is a generic name in which to designate polymers.…The resin, its chemical composition and physical properties,…fundamentally affect the processing, fabrication,…and ultimate properties of the final composite material.…Thermosetting resins are the most diverse…and widely used of all man-made materials.…They're easily poured or formed into any shape,…and are compatible with most other materials.…Polyester resins are relatively inexpensive,…very fast processing, and used for low-cost applications.…
Low-smoke producing polyester resins are used…for interior parts of the aircraft.…The appearance, handling properties,…and curing characteristics of vinyl ester resins…are the same as those of conventional polyester resins,…however corrosion resistance in mechanical properties…of mechanical ester composites…are much improved over standard polyester components.…Phenolic resins are used for interior components…because of the low-smoke and flammability characteristics.…
