Abstract: Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composites have many applications in the automotive, aerospace, civil engineering, and medical industries based on their enhanced mechanical properties such as increased strength and corrosion resistance and low density. On the other hand, CFRPs’ mechanical properties are diminished at increased temperatures since the polymer matrix degrades at high temperatures. In order to thermally shield the CFRPs, the composites were encased by layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly with a polymer-clay water-based multilayer film coating. This coating demonstrates insulation of the composites at high temperatures during mechanical testing with flame where the CFRP composites’ backside temperature is reduced to below 100 oC. During dynamic mechanical analysis, the coating functions as a mechanical barrier by retaining the storage modulus of the composite longer compared to uncoated post-burn composite samples. During X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), the coating functioned as oxidative degradation barrier. This water-based polymer-clay coating shields CFRP and other cutting-edge composites from increased mechanical loads and extreme temperatures, making it particularly viable for applications in aerospace.
