Abstract:

This present program was aimed at establishing those parameters prerequisite to a component processing and evaluation effort. The results of this program showed that the molding process is feasible for the preparation of advanced fiber reinforced plastic components. Some of high stiffness characteristics inherent in Kevlar 49epoxy materials are transferred from the continuous reinforcement composites to chopped fiber reinforced plastics. Thus the molded materials can provide the enhanced properties at reduced costs. Problem areas in the current molding process were demonstrated and numerous means for overcoming these problem areas within the current technology are discussed.
