  • Publication number: 20170306117
    Abstract: Provided is an epoxy resin composition with improved heat resistance and resin elongation. Further provided is a fiber-reinforced composite material which uses the epoxy resin composition and thereby excels in compression strength in high-temperature environments and interlaminar toughness. The epoxy resin composition comprises the constituents [A], [B] and [C], 8-40 mass % of [B] is contained in the epoxy resin composition. The number of moles of active hydrogen contained in [C] is 1.05-2.0 times the number of moles of epoxy groups contained in the entire epoxy resin composition, in a cured resin formed by curing the epoxy resin composition and having a degree of curing of at least 90% obtained by DSC (differential scanning catorimetry), [A], [B] and [C] form a monolayer structure, or a phase separation structure of less than 500 nm. The rubber state modulus of elasticity Y (MPa) and glass transition temperature X (° C.) obtained by DMA (dynamic mechanical analysis) of the cured resin satisfy formula (1).
