Abstract

In the reported experiments, the small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) from an Epon 812 and two Epon 828 (one amine-cured and one anhydride-cured) epoxy resins has been measured using a Bonse-Hart system. The data cover the angular range (2 theta ) between 20 sec and 60 min. After correction for absorption, background and vertical beam divergence, they have been placed on an absolute basis by comparison with the scattering from a previously studied polycarbonate sample. The magnitude of the intensity in the constant-intensity region is close to the value predicted by thermodynamic fluctuation theory for fluids applied at the glass transition temperature. The increase in intensity at angles smaller than 20-30 min is associated with heterogeneities in the cured resins. These heterogeneities cover a range of sizes in all samples, from less than 100 A to more than 1000 A, with the most frequently occurring size in the range 100-200 A.
