 Abstract
The objective of this work was to characterize mechanical properties of thermoplastic composites with various forming conditions in compression molding. Randomly oriented long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene(PP) was used in this work. The composite materials contained 20%, 30%, and 40% glass fiber by weight. Compression molding was conducted at various mold temperatures and charge sizes. The temperatures on the mold surface and at the material in the mid-plain were monitored during the molding. Differential Scanning Calorimeter was used to measure crystallinity at both in-side and out-side of the sheet material. Crystallinity at each temperature was also measured by X-ray diffractometer. Dimensional stability was studied at various conditions with the spring forward angle. Among the processing parameters, the crystallization time at the temperature above 130, was found to be the most effective. Spring-forward angle was reduced and the tensile modulus was increased as the mold temperature increased.
