Abstract

Fiber impregnation has been the main obstacle for thermoplastic matrix with high viscosity. This problem can be surmounted by adapting low viscous polymeric precursors such as cyclic butylenes terephthalate (CBT) resins, which polymerized to form thermoplastic matrix. Woven basalt fabric reinforced poly (butylenes terephthalate) composites were produced via in situ polymerization. The effect of different thermal history during processing on composites properties was investigated. DSC was used to determine the polymerization and crystallization properties of each condition. Tensile, three point bending, and short-beam shear tests were empolyed to study the mechanical properties with different thermal history.
