Abstract

The physical aging of epoxy resins and their composites was studied under humidity jump conditions which can be described in the framework of the time-aging time superposition principle. The humidity jumps resulted in similar physical aging behavior with the jump of the final state. A strong memory effect was observed in the humidity up and down jumps to the same intermediate humidity condition. These results demonstrates the power of using the analogy between temperature and plasticization effects.
