The effect of temperature and strain rate on the mechanical properties of highly oriented polypropylene tapes and all-polypropylene composites
Abstract The creation of highly oriented, co-extruded polypropylene (PP) tapes allows the production of recyclable “all-polypropylene” (all-PP) composites, with a large temperature processing windowExpand
