The paper investigates experimental results of static and dynamic fracture toughness. The three-point bending test and the Charpy pendulum test were performed for two kinds of polymers: Epidian 5 epoxy resin cured with Z1 curing agent and Epidian 53 epoxy resin cured with Z1 curing agent. The comparison between the values of a maximum static and a maximum dynamic force are discussed as well as the values of static and dynamic fracture toughness, with special emphasis on microscopic views of crack propagation.
