Abstract

In the field of self-reinforced composites many researchers have focused their attention on the coextruded tapes composed of polypropylene core and PP/PE copolymer skin. Two similar commercial fabrics (P and T) have been compared in respect of their peel resistance. For both materials, peel resistance has a periodic trend that regularly follows fabric weave style. T has demonstrated an average peel resistance and a well-bonded area slightly greater than P. Skin/core interfacial properties have been investigated and a crosscheck between differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Raman spectroscopy has been adopted to understand the influence of skin structure on consolidated laminate. DSC curves exhibit three melting peaks during first heating for both fabrics, corresponding to copolymer, skin/core interface, and core melting. After consolidation at 140°C stretching-induced superstructure and PP crystallinity degree are preserved. The presence of PP/PE copolymer + PE blend only in fabric P has been pointed out and PE content has been calculated. POLYM. ENG. SCI., 2016. © 2016 Society of Plastics Engineers
