Chemical and Mechanical Correlation Between Carbon Fibers and Thermoplastic UD-Tapes


Carbon fibers with a yarn sizing which combines high-temperature operating options up to 400 °C and optimal yarn-processing properties are discussed. These thermoplastic-optimized filament yarns provides an advantageous alternative to unsized carbon fibers which are hardly suitable for cost-efficient processing. Especially, much lower unwanted filament abrasion and thus higher possible processing speed make the thermoplastic (TP) optimized carbon fibers superior for the production of TP-products.Based on this TP-optimized carbon fiber unidirectional tapes (TPUD) are produced with polyetheretherketone (PEEK)-matrix. The chemical and mechanical correlation between the carbon fibers and the TPUD are analysed. Glass transition temperatures and analysis of crystallographic thin-sections of the crystals of the thermoplastic matrices as well as the mechanical performance of carbon fibers and the TPUD are discussed. Finally, the chemical resistance of thermoplastic to thermoset materials are briefly compared.
