The objective of this work was to characterize mechanical properties of thermoplastic composites for various forming condition in compression molding. Randomly oriented long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene(PP) was used in the work. The composite materials contained 20%, 30%, and 40% glass fiber by weight. Compression molding was conducted to make the test specimen. Dimensional stability was measured on each forming condition with the spring-forward angle. Tensile test was conducted to characterize mechanical properties of formed parts in various forming conditions.
