  • 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 window and a high volume fraction of highly oriented PP (>90%). The wholly thermoplastic nature of these ‘self-reinforced’ composites implies that the mechanical performance may vary with temperature. This paper describes the mechanical performance of all-PP composites by measuring the mechanical… CONTINUE READING
