Abstract

Fiber impregnation has been the main obstacle for thermoplastic matrix with high viscosity. This problem could be surmounted by adapting low viscous polymeric precursors Woven basalt fabric reinforced poly (butylenes terephthalate) composites were produced via in-situ polymerization at T=210°C. Before polymerization, catalyst was introduced to the reinforcement surface with different concentration. DSC is used to determine the polymerization and crystallization. SEM is used to detect whether the catalyst existed on surface. Both flexural and short-beam shear test are employed to study the corresponding mechanical properties.
