Abstract: The role of water and other contaminants like salt water, iso-octane, and ethylene glycol on neat resin, composites, and friction materials have been investigated. The maximum solvent uptake and the diffusion coefficient of the solvent in these systems were determined and the experimental data was fitted to a Fickian model. The nature of the diffusion process was determined in each case and deviations from Fickian behavior were accounted for. For the neat resin and the composites, the diffusion coefficients o…
