Title

Aging Behavior of Optically Transparent Poly (methyl Methacrylate) Composites

Abstract

The thermal aging between 25 and 115°C of hot pressed glass fiber reinforced poly(methyl methacrylate)(PMMA) transparent composites was studied as a function of the temperature and time of hot pressing. Thermal aging at near the Tg of the PMMA matrix caused dimensional changes and a reduction in optical transmission and clarity.
