Paper Title:
Manufacture and Characteristics of Fibrous Composite Z-Pins
  Abstract

Z-pins are thin fibrous composite or metallic rods that could increase the strength of laminated composites in the thickness direction. In this paper, three kinds of composite z-pins were made by improved pultrusion method. The length of pultrusion die is shortened to 30mm with no function of curing. The curing equipment is individual control drying ovens. And then, tensile properties of z-pins were reported as well as the appearance and fiber content. Results show that three kinds of z-pins have good flexural resilience. The fiber volume fraction is around 60%. Carbon fiber z-pin has smoother surface than aramid fiber z-pin. And, The thinner z-pin corresponds to the higher tensile strength and tensile modulus. The elongation rate of aramid fiber z-pin is greater than that of carbon fiber one.
