Study the Effect of Antimony Tetroxide Addition on Thermal Conductivity for Araldite Resin Reinforced by Biaxial Glass Fibers

Abstract

This research studied the effect of flame retardant material addition which is antimony Tetroxide on thermal conductivity for composite material consist of araldite resin reinforced by biaxial woven roving E–type glass fibers (°90-°0) with density (300 g/m2) where we added a different percentage from antimony Tetroxide (10%, 20%,30%) and study the effect on thermal conductivity , and we used Fourier equation to calculate the thermal conductivity coefficient (k) for this composite material before and after addition of flame retardant material illustrated in diagrams which represent the relation between thermal conductivity coefficient (k) with temperature.
