Conventional materials made of glass and carbon fibres in thermoset resins are very frequently employed. Recently, thermoplastic matrix composites are being developed to improve the toughness and damage tolerance of composite laminates. The ductility of thermoplastic resins implies a more pronounced plasticity in service. Kevlar fibre has a tensile strength comparable with that of carbon fibre, a modulus between those of glass and carbon fibres and a lower density than both. Kevlar-49… Expand
