These results indicated that a lot of instantaneous energy during the mechanical impact resulted in the rapid increase of temperature of the local surface of the specimen, which led to the phosphorus-containing groups on the surface of the specimen thermally decomposed to form the phosphoric oxyacid.
The XPS analysis confirmed that the mechanical impact resulted in phosphorus-containing groups on the surface of the cured phosphorus-containing epoxy resin thermally decomposed to form the phosphoric oxyacid.
