ResumenThe influence of the end groups of two liquid rubbers on curing kinetics, morphology, and hardness behavior of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A based epoxy resin (DGEBA) has been studied. The rubbers are silyl-dihydroxy terminated (PDMS-co-DPS-OH) and silyl-diglycidyl ether terminated (PDMS-DGE). Crosslinking reactions, investigated by shear rheometry, ranged 90-110 °C, using a constant concentration (5 phr) of liquid rubbers and 1,2-Diamino cyclohexane (1,2-DCH) as hardener agent. The gel time, t gel, of the neat epoxy significantly decreased when adding the elastomers, more so for the silyl-dihydroxy terminated elastomer; at 110 °C the reaction was nearly complete before rheological test started. The results suggest that the elastomers induced a catalytic effect on the curing reaction. Scanning electron microscopy revealed phase separation of the elastomer during the curing reaction with rubber domains about 5 μm size. However, the DGEBA/dihydroxy terminated elastomer composite cured at 110 °C exhibited a homogenous morphology, that is, the rapid reaction time would not allow for phase separation. Water contact angle tests evidenced either more hydrophilic (silyl-diglycidyl ether terminated rubber) or more hydrophobic (silyl-dihydroxy terminated rubber) behavior than the neat epoxy. The latter effect is attributed to the presence of aromatic rings in the backbone structure of PDMS-co-DPS-OH. Microindentation measurements show that the elastomers significantly reduced the hardness of the epoxy resin, the DGEBA/ether terminated composite exhibiting the lowest hardness values. Moreover, hardness increased as reaction temperature did, correlating with a reduction of microdomains size thus enabling the tuning of mechanical properties with reaction temperature. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
