Phosphorus containing epoxy resin


The curing behavior of phosphorus based epoxy terminated polymers was studied using diaminodiphenyl ether, diaminodiphenyl sulfone, benzophenone tetracarboxylic dianhydride and the commercial hardener of Ciba-Geigy's two-pack araldite, as curing agent. The adhesive strength of these adhesives was measured by various \{ASTM\} methods like lap-shear, peel, and cohesive tests on metal–metal, wood–wood and wood–metal interfaces. All these results were compared with the synthesized epoxy resins prepared from bisphenol-A and epichlorohydrin having the epoxy equivalent value of 0.519. The thermal stability of both the virgin resin and its cured form was also studied by thermogravimetric analysis.
