Abstract

Scope of our work has been development of a new type of coupling agent by which processing of long carbon fibre reinforced composites by injection moulding will be possible since hindering the fibres from breakage and simultaneously improving the mechanical properties. Resistance of LLDPE of 1-10% carbon fibres against tensile and flexure stresses has been investigated. Tensile strength has increased by 30% and flexure strength has gained 90% related to the neat polymer. Fibre/matrix interaction has been studied on SEM graphs and a polymer layer has been observed to be connected to the fibre in additive treated fibre containing composites.
