Abstract

Single fibre pull out was used to investigate the interfacial shear strength (IFSS) between Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) fibre and Polypropylene (PP) matrix containing various percentages of maleic anhydride (MA). Glass Fibre (GF) – PP was used as a benchmark for the PET-PP IFSS to ascertain whether PET fibre could match the IFSS performance of glass fibre. The results of the pull out test show that the IFSS of PET – PP increase from 1.3MPa to 5.5MPa when increasing the MA content from 0% to 10% with maximum GF – PP IFSS reaching 10.2 MPa at 1.5% MA.
