Composite Sheet Forming by D. Bhattacharyya

By D. Bhattacharyya

Sheet forming is the commonest technique utilized in steel forming and is consequently continually being tailored or transformed to fit the desires of forming composite sheets. as a result of expanding availability of varied varieties of fibre strengthened polymeric sheets, specially with thermoplastic matrices, the scope of use of such fabrics is quickly increasing within the motor vehicle, construction, activities and different production industries past the normal components of aerospace and plane purposes.

1). Aramid fibers are manufactured in a process called solution spinning. The polymer powder is dissolved in sulfuric acid and is extruded through small holes, or spinnerets, into a narrow air gap. The fibers are quenched in a water bath to solidify the fibers and wash off most of the acid. The fibers are further washed, dried under tension, and then wound onto spools. Since aramid fibers are not brittle a protective size is not necessary. When the polymer solution is extruded through the spinneret, the molecules align with the direction of shear and the subsequent quenching ensures that the orientation remains in the final fiber.

A fiber, or filament, has a length-to-diameter ratio that approaches infinity and a diameter of the order of 10-5 m. All common fibers are manufactured in a drawing process, where the liquid raw material is drawn from an orifice. The drawing process ensures that the molecules of fibers organic in origin are aligned and parallel to the drawing direction, translating into significantly higher strength and stiffness in the axial direction than transverse to it. The most common types of fibrous reinforcement used in composites applications are glass, carbon, and aramid.

The size of glass tows and rovings is given by tex number (weight in grams of 1,000 m) or yield in yd/lb (in North America). , while common yields are 900, 450, 225, etc. (1 yd/lb ~ 500,000/tex). Several different glass compositions are available, the most common being E and S glass, where "E" denotes electrical and "S" high strength. E glass offers excellent electrical properties and durability and is considered a general-purpose grade that heavily dominates consumption. S glass and R glass are similar and offer improved stiffness and strength as well as high-temperature tolerance.
