Abstract:

THE ADVANTAGES OF THERMOPLASTIC MATRIX COMPOSITES FOR MANUFACTURING LOW-COST CMPONENTS HAVE YET TO BE REALIZED. AN IMPORTANT FACTOR LIMITING THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES IS THE LACK OF LOW-COST METHOD FOR PRODUCING HIGH-QUALITY PREPREGS AND PREFORMS. A METHOD OF PRODUCING THESE MATERIALS THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH COMMONLY USED COMPOSITE FABRICATION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS FILAMENT WINDING, PULTRUSION, AND PREPREGGING IS BEING RESEARCHED. THIS APPROACH CAN MAKE THERMOPLASTIC MATRIX COMPOSITES COMPETITIVE WITH CURRENT THERMOSET MATRIX COMPOSITES.
