Abstract:Composite materials based on polysiloxane matrix reinforced by basalt fibres were prepared in laboratories of the IRSM ASCR. The composite samples were pyrolysed at 400 ÷ 750 °C after moulding and curing at 250 °C. Measurement of several mechanical characteristics (flexural strength, fracture toughness, impact strength, and measurement of elasticity) demonstrates a favourable influence of pyrolysis in comparison with the cured-only composite material. Fracture toughness was measured by chevron-notch technique …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
