Influence of an Acidic Environment on a Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer Grid
The article deals with the influence of an acidic environment on the mechanical properties of a Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) grid. The influence of an acidic environment is examined on samples cut from a GFRP grid. The samples were stored in an acidic bath for various period of time. The samples were then tested using three-point bending and the interlamination shear strength test. The characteristics of the samples exposed to the acidic environment were compared with those of the reference sample. The experiment demonstrated the effect an acidic environment can have on the properties of GFRP material.
