Scholarcy highlights

  • Self-reinforced polymer or all-polymer composites have been developed to replace traditional fibre reinforced plastic with good interfacial adhesion and enhanced recyclability
  • All-Poly(ethylene terephthalate) composites were prepared by film stacking of oriented PET tapes
  • A processing temperature window was determined by a series of tests on PET tapes and co-PET films, including DSC and T-peel tests
  • The effect of compaction temperatures and pressures on tensile properties of all-Poly(ethylene terephthalate) composites was investigated to explore the optimum processing parameters for balancing good interfacial adhesion between tapes and residual tensile properties of PET tapes
