Effect of Silicone-modified Microsilica Content on Electrical and Mechanical Properties of Cycloaliphatic Epoxy/Microsilica System Park, Jae-Jun; Yoon, Chan-Young; Lee, Jae-Young; Cheong, Jong-Hoon; Kang, Geun-Bae;
The effect of microsilica content modified with silicone-modified epoxy on electrical and mechanical properties of cycloaliphatic epoxy/microsilica system was investigated. The cycloaliphatic epoxy resin was diglycidyl 1,2-cyclohexanedicarboxylate and curing agent was an anhydride. Surface of microsilica was modified with silicone-modified epoxy. Electrical breakdown strength, the most important property for electrical insulation materials was tested. Tensile and flexural tests were also performed using universal testing machine (UTM). The microcomposite with 60 wt% microsilica shows maximum values in electrical breakdown strength.
