Title

Transparent Composites of Poly(chlorotrifluoroethylene) Reinforced with Fluorophosphate Glass Fibers

Abstract

Improvements in both stiffness (elastic modulus: EM) and strength (tensile yield strength; TYS) have been achieved for hot-pressed composites of poly(chlorotrifluoroethylene) (PCTFE) and fluorophosphate glass using a confined mold and a thermal quenching technique. Fluorophosphate fibers were successfully pulled for the first time, and the good wetting (glass fiber/polymer contact) needed to retain the optical transparency of the PCTFE was achieved.
