Paper Title:
Investigation of the Weldability of the Self-Reinforced Polypropylene Composites
  Abstract

In the present work the weldability of self-reinforced composite was investigated. As reinforcement a fabric, woven from highly stretched split PP yarns, whereas as matrix materials of two kinds of random polypropylene copolymer (with ethylene) were used. The composite sheets were produced by film-stacking method and compression molded with different thickness (1 mm, 2 mm) with different contents at different processing temperatures keeping the holding time and pressure constant. The SRPPC sheets were welded by ultrasonic welding machine with different welding parameters. The welds were qualified by mechanical and microscopic tests. The results showed that the thermoplastic reinforcement has not got melted; therefore the reinforcement was kept the strength-increasing effect.
