The use of reinforced plastics is vast. A proper understanding of these materials and their properties is Important. The interface of a reinforced plastic influences many of the materials mechanical properties. This study of fiber reinforced composites was conducted to better understand the interfacial interactions between XENOY and E-Glass fibers. The research consisted of studying the effects of processing temperature, long term hydrolytic attack, and coupling agents, on the interface.
