  • Abstract Woven fabric based self-reinforced polypropylene (SRPP) or all-polypropylene (all-PP) composite laminates based on co-extruded tapes were analysed for water uptake and the effect that this had on mechanical properties. Comparisons were made to a commercial glass mat reinforced PP (GMT) and natural fibre mat reinforced PP (NMT). Although the all-PP composites described in this paper can show significant water uptake through the presence of voids between tapes in the crimp region, the… CONTINUE READING
