Thermoplastic Composites : Solutions to Optimize Matrix Fiber Interface

By Mark DeMeuse

Thermoplastic composite materials often suffer from a lack of fiber­-matrix adhesion. A weak interface in these materials results in low stiffness and and strength but a high resistance to fracture. On the other hand, a strong interface produces high strength and stiffness but generally low fracture resistance. This lack of fiber-matrix adhesion can typically be remedied using fiber surface modification. However, usual surface treatments for epoxy-based thermoset composites do not necessarily work well for use in thermoplastic composites. Read on and explore the best solutions to optimize matrix / fiber interface in thermoplastic composites!
