  • Patent number: 9017569
    Abstract: A method for preparing a copper alloy given a certain special surface shape yields tremendous bonding strength through compatibility with an epoxy resin adhesive. With a composite part in which this technology is utilized to integrate a copper alloy member as a cover material with a CFRP, it is possible to take advantage of the characteristics of both the copper alloy and the FRP due to the tremendous bonding strength. In a step in which an FRP prepreg is put into a mold and heated and cured, usually the mold is first coated with a release agent to facilitate release from the mold, but with high-technology CFRP, bleeding of the release agent often diminishes the properties. A copper alloy sheet 21 is used as a cover material, and a CFRP 22 is cured.

  • Patent number: 8846191
    Abstract: Bilayer platelet fillers are employed to compensate for a positive coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of an embedding polymeric material, or even to provide a composite structure having a negative CTE to eliminate or alleviate thermomechanical stress and/or delamination during thermal cycling. A bilayer platelet includes two joined layers having different CTEs. The CTE mismatch induces bending of the bilayer platelets, thereby causing cavities at temperatures lower than the joining temperature at which the bilayers are joined. The decrease in the volume of the polymeric material and the bilayer platelets at low temperatures is compensated by an accompanying increase in the volume of the cavities so that the composite structure has a temperature independent volume, a low net CTE, or even a negative CTE.
