ABSTRACT

Jute fiber-reinforced semi-IPN and full-IPN Epoxy/VAc-EHA/HMMM IPN composite plates have been prepared in a laboratory at different volume fractions of VAc-EHA for the evaluation of mechanical properties. An epoxy solution was blended with VinylAcetate-2-Ethylhexylacrylate (VAc-EHA) resin in an aqueous medium at varying weight fractions of VAc-EHA. It has been observed that as soon as the percentage of the VAc-EHA increases, the ultimate tensile strength and modulus of elasticity of a jute fiber-reinforced semi-IPN and full-IPN composite plate decreases. A jute fiber-reinforced full-IPN composite plate is compact and harder than a jute fiber-reinforced semi-IPN composite plate.
