In the present work tubular –shaped fiber reinforced composites were
manufactured by using two types of resin epoxy (EP) and unsaturated polyester
(UP),each was separately reinforced with glass, carbon and kevlar-49 fibers (filament
and woven roving), hybrid reinforcement composites of these fibers were also
prepared. The adhesion force test of the prepared specimens was carried out. These
adhesion forces exhibited a peak value at a percent of hardener/resin (H/R)= 3% for
UP matrix with all type of fiber arrangements while 30% was obtained for EP matrix
.Such behavior was declined with increase in temperatures. Glass transition
temperatures were determined from these measurements, and found to be 90°C for EP–
glass and 83 °C for UP –glass composites.
