Paper Title:
Manufacturing Technique and Property Evaluation of Polypropylene/ Carbon Fiber Composite Braids
  Abstract

In this study, carbon fibers (CF) were braided with polypropylene (PP) fibers on a 16-spindle braid machine, forming the PP/ CF composite braids. The composite braids with different levels of strength could be obtained by changing the speed of the yarn turntable and volume gauze. The composite braids with optimum tensile strength then received the thermal treatment, which melted the PP fibers to wrap the CF more tightly, stabilizing the structure of the composite braids. According to CNS 11623 (Tensile Properties of Geogrids by the Single), the composite braids were thermal-treated at 170 °C, 180 °C and 190 °C for1 min, 2 min and 3 min, determing the influence of thermal temperature and duration on the tensile strength of PP/ CF composite braids.
