Lay & Associates, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based consultancy that specializes in organizational and leadership development Lay has served as facilitator for the CTBN
from its inception, beginning with concluding the initial research and organization-building effort in 2004.
The large domain of the CTBN
or ATBN modifier in an epoxy matrix--on the order of tens of microns--makes it impossible to toughen ultra-thin applications where the thickness of the epoxy layer is also on the order of microns," Bohen explains.

9% respectively, at 20-phr CTBN

The second phase was formed by the CTBN
, which phase separated during cure and was set in place when the epoxy resin reached gelation.
To the total base resin (epoxy resins and curing agents), liquid carboxyl terminated butadiene acrylonitrile rubber, CTBN
, Hycar 1300X13, from BF Goodrich, was added in the amount of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 phr.
Within a certain range of composition, the rubber encapsulation is found to change the interactions between glass beads and CTBN
particles, resulting in an increase in fracture toughness.
In this work, liquid CTBN
rubber was used to toughen a standard DGEBA epoxy.
materials primarily toughen epoxy matrices through two separate mechanisms.
Bagheri and Pearson (22) have studied the interfacial phenomenon of CTBN
