Curing Epoxy Resins by Microwave Radiation
Berg, Klaus, Christodoulou, Periklis, & Yarlagadda, Prasad K. (1998) Curing Epoxy Resins by Microwave Radiation. In 9th International Conference on Production Technology, October 1998, Berlin, Germany.
Rapid prototyping is a generic process for making rapidly and accurately three-dimensional physical objects of almost any shape. Existing rapid prototyping techniques rely on laser and printing techniques. The use of microwave technology in rapid prototyping has not been explored as yet. In this work, curing process of thin layers of epoxy resins using microwave radiation was investigated as an alternative technique that can be implemented to develop a new rapid prototyping technique. Curing temperature and curing time have been determined for several epoxy mixtures. The mixtures were made up of three commercially available epoxy resins, hardener, aluminium and flydust powder
