Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the potential of using a partially bio-based epoxy resin system with synthetic and mineral-based natural fibres to reduce the environmental impact of the composite material without significantly compromising the mechanical properties. The key findings of this study are:  In contrast to the petroleum based epoxy, elevated temperature (30°C) was required to infuse the BEP for all reinforcements; this is an important consideration for the infusion of large structures. DMTA showed that all laminates were tested in a fully cured state. As expected from the data sheets, T
