Abstract: Throughout their service life, carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composites are exposed to a range of environmental conditions. The long-term durability of these composites is an ongoing concern because exposure to moisture can degrade the polymeric matrix and deteriorate the mechanical properties of the composite. Carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composites are sensitive to their environments via humidity, elevated temperatures, and liquid exposure. This paper reviews the moisture uptake behavior and diffusion characteristics of continuous carbon fiber epoxy composites which will serve as a good source for understanding the moisture diffusion behavior of these composites in hot/wet environments.
