Abstract

Dimethylnorbornene ester (DNE) is successfully used as a noncovalent adhesion promoter. DNE was confirmed to copolymerize with dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) to yield a copolymer with better adhesion to an EPON 828 epoxy matrix relative to poly(DCPD) alone. The mechanical properties of the copolymer were comparable to that of poly(DCPD) alone. An optimized blend of the monomers was encapsulated using a urea-formaldheyde microencapsulation procedure and the resulting capsules were used for in situ self-healing experiments. Improved healing efficiency was observed for samples containing the DCPD/DNE capsules under conditions in which the monomers were efficiently polymerized.
