Abstract

In this work the creep behavior of self-reinforced polymer composites (SRPC) were investigated. As matrix material olefin based thermoplastic elastomeric (o-TPE), as reinforcement highly oriented polypropylenes were used. The tested self-reinforced composites were prepared by filament winding with subsequent compression molding and injection molding (from new pre-impregnated pre-product material) technique. On the SRPC creep tests were carried out. The tensile and flexural creep tests were performed by universal tensile machine and dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA) test. The results revealed that the creep behavior of the self-reinforced materials depended on the matrix material and the reinforcement structure. The highest strain was achieved using woven fabric while the unidirectional structure showed the lowest strain.
