Introduction / Griltex CE for Epoxy-Based Composites

PRODUKTBILD

Resin Transfer Molding (RTM)

Introduction
High performance Copolyamides and Copolyesters
are the speciality of EMS-GRILTECH. These
thermoplastic materials are especially designed to
meet the requirements of our customers. For fiberbased composites made of glass-, basalt-, carbonand polymer-fibers we produce tailor-made materials.
These are established under the trade names
Griltex® CE and Griltex® CT.

Griltex CE for Epoxy-Based
Composites
Griltex CE is a group of high performance
Copolyesters for the use in epoxy-based composites.
These Copolyesters are used as binder materials for
the stabilization of


UD filaments



Multi-ply, woven & knitted fabrics



Griltex CE is especially used for the manufacturing of
multi-ply preforms as well as for the stabilization of
fabrics in the RTM process (Fig. 1). In this process,
the binder material is applied on the fabric by
different application techniques (page 3). Subsequent
consolidation of the fabric is achieved via heating
above the melting point of the thermoplastic material.
The stabilized fabric is subsequently subjected to the
RTM process. Due to Griltex CE, the consolidated
fabric fibers remain fixed in the ideal position when
the incoming resin is infused with normal or high
pressure. This is not the case when no Griltex CE is
used. The procedure including Griltex CE ensures
optimal mechanical properties of the semi-finished
part.

Griltex CE – Compression after Impact

PRODUKTBILD

Mechanical Properties

Ultrasound images of Composite laminates:

Mechanical properties and thus performance of
composite parts are usually determined by standard
test methods such as the Compression after Impact
(CAI) or the Interlaminar Shear Strength Test (ILSS).
Compression after Impact
The CAI test is used to assess the residual strength of
a pre-damaged composite laminate. This value is a
measure for the impact resistance of fiber-reinforced
polymers. Pre-damaging of the composite laminate is
accomplished by a specified energy in a drop impact
tester equipped with a casing head.
Tested composite laminates with Griltex CE (Fig. 3)
have shown a radical decrease of the delamination
area up to 85% in comparison to laminates without
Griltex CE (Fig. 2).

Fig. 2) Reference without
Griltex CE: large
delamination area

After pre-damaging, the residual strength of the
composite laminate is determined by a special
pressure device according to the standard test
method of the Airbus Industry (AITM 1.0010).
Composite laminates with Griltex CE binder material
show drastically increased residual strengths
up to 65%.

Griltex CE – Interlaminar Shear Strength

PRODUKTBILD

Interlaminar Shear Strength
Interlaminar shear strength measures the bonding
strength between single layers.
ILSS values are determined by a three point bending
test (Fig. 4) according to the standard test method
ASTM D 2344M.

Testing at higher temperatures and after conditioning
in water also shows increased ILSS values using
Griltex CE.

Peeling Force

The adhesion and thus the compatibility of materials
can be determined by a peel strength test. This test
method measures the forces when two bonded
materials are pulled apart until failure (Fig. 6 and 7).
The required force is measured in Newton/5 cm
(DIN 54310).

Thermoplastic binder powders for improved epoxy composites

  • 1. Griltex CE / CT for Composite Applications
  • 2. 2 Introduction / Griltex CE for Epoxy-Based Composites PRODUKTBILD Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) Introduction High performance Copolyamides and Copolyesters are the speciality of EMS-GRILTECH. These thermoplastic materials are especially designed to meet the requirements of our customers. For fiberbased composites made of glass-, basalt-, carbonand polymer-fibers we produce tailor-made materials. These are established under the trade names Griltex® CE and Griltex® CT. Griltex CE for Epoxy-Based Composites Griltex CE is a group of high performance Copolyesters for the use in epoxy-based composites. These Copolyesters are used as binder materials for the stabilization of  UD filaments  Multi-ply, woven & knitted fabrics  Griltex CE is especially used for the manufacturing of multi-ply preforms as well as for the stabilization of fabrics in the RTM process (Fig. 1). In this process, the binder material is applied on the fabric by different application techniques (page 3). Subsequent consolidation of the fabric is achieved via heating above the melting point of the thermoplastic material. The stabilized fabric is subsequently subjected to the RTM process. Due to Griltex CE, the consolidated fabric fibers remain fixed in the ideal position when the incoming resin is infused with normal or high pressure. This is not the case when no Griltex CE is used. The procedure including Griltex CE ensures optimal mechanical properties of the semi-finished part. Nonwovens Step 1: Application of Griltex CE Step 3: RTM Step 2: Consolidation IR Heater / Oven Woven Fabric Preforming Fig.1 Optimized RTM process using Griltex CE Resin Transfer
  • 3. 3 Griltex CE – Added Value PRODUKTBILD Advantages Applications  Stabilized fabric fibers are not deflected from the ideal position due to Griltex CE (RTM process)  Transportation  Sports equipment  Improvement of mechanical values of composites  Building and construction  Glueing of multiple layers to one component  Wind energy  Production of preforms without additional auxiliaries  Technical equipment and plant engineering  Better and easier handling  Medical equipment  No curing time of Griltex CE  Antifray Technical Data of Griltex CE Griltex CE Added Value CE 20 Binders as well as tougheners are well known in the market.

  • 4. 4 Griltex CE – Compression after Impact PRODUKTBILD Mechanical Properties Ultrasound images of Composite laminates: Mechanical properties and thus performance of composite parts are usually determined by standard test methods such as the Compression after Impact (CAI) or the Interlaminar Shear Strength Test (ILSS). Compression after Impact The CAI test is used to assess the residual strength of a pre-damaged composite laminate. This value is a measure for the impact resistance of fiber-reinforced polymers. Pre-damaging of the composite laminate is accomplished by a specified energy in a drop impact tester equipped with a casing head. Tested composite laminates with Griltex CE (Fig. 3) have shown a radical decrease of the delamination area up to 85% in comparison to laminates without Griltex CE (Fig. 2). Fig. 2) Reference without Griltex CE: large delamination area After pre-damaging, the residual strength of the composite laminate is determined by a special pressure device according to the standard test method of the Airbus Industry (AITM 1.0010). Composite laminates with Griltex CE binder material show drastically increased residual strengths up to 65%. Delamination Area Residual Strength after Impact 300 5000 200 2 [MPa] * 7500 [mm ] * Fig. 3) with Griltex CE: delamination area significantly reduced 2500 100 0 0 No Griltex CE 20 CE 21 CE 22 No Griltex CE 20 CE 21 * Laminate Composition: 16 layers (90°, 0°, +45°, -45°) quasi isotropic, UD – Carbon fiber (298 g/m2), 2 Fiber volume content 65-70%, RTM 6 resin, 18 g/m Griltex CE between each layer CE 22
  • 5. 5 Griltex CE – Interlaminar Shear Strength PRODUKTBILD Interlaminar Shear Strength Interlaminar shear strength measures the bonding strength between single layers. ILSS values are determined by a three point bending test (Fig. 4) according to the standard test method ASTM D 2344M. Testing at higher temperatures and after conditioning in water also shows increased ILSS values using Griltex CE. Interlaminar Shear Strength (Special Conditions) 80 [MPa] * 60 40 20 0 No Griltex 23 °C ww Fig. 4 Three point bending test ILSS values of composite laminates with Griltex CE binder material are increased up to 36%.
