Research on Processing Technology of Polyester Fabric Reinforced Polypropylene Thermoplastic Laminated Composites
Thermoplastic composites are eco-friendly to environment. In this study, PET/PP thermoplastic composite laminates were produced by interleaving polypropylene (PP) sheets with polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plain fabrics in the condition of varying thermocompression temperature, pressure and time. Afterwards, peel resistance, tensile and impact properties of PET/PP thermoplastic laminates were tested. And the tensile and impact performance of PET/PP laminates was respectively about 40 % and 320 % higher than PP laminates. It was shown that when thermal compressing under pressure of 40 Kg/cm2 at 230 °C for 0.5 minute, PET/PP thermoplastic laminates had optimum tensile and impact properties.
