The effect of adding fortifiers to an epoxy matrix on the response to impact and compression-after-impact properties of carbon fabric/epoxy laminates was investigated. The experimental work included determining laminate compression strength, absorbed energy from impact, damage area and compression-after-impact strength for an impact energy level of 21 joules per centimeter of thickness. This paper presents the results from this investigation and discusses the relationship between neat resin properties (with and without fortifiers) and the laminate properties.
