Abstract: A novel approach for toughening thermosetting epoxy matrices using both thermoplastics and liquid reactive rubbers as modifiers has been investigated. The network structure of the modified epoxy systems was characterized using dynamic mechanical analysis, and the morphology of the multiphase structure was examined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). To investigate the continuity of the phase domains, the constituents in the phase domains were positively identified using solving etching and RuO, staining…
