Abstract

Carbon fibre reinforced cyclic butylene terephtalate were produced by a low pressure method, the impregnating temperature and the cooling speed were investigated using plate-plate rheometry and differential scanning calorimetry. The effects of low fibre volume fraction of carbon fibre reinforcement (∼20 vol.-%) on the mechanical properties were examined by tensile and flexural tests and Charpy dynamic impact test. The results showed a significant increase in Young's modulus and ultimate strength and were supported by scanning electron microscopy pictures of the broken surfaces to study fibre wet-out.
