ΝΗΥΤΕ @ 9th International Conference on Times of Polymers and Composites

Processing of semi-crystalline thermoplastic matrix composites for aeronautical applications experienced some problems with regards to the high temperatures required and the need to control the cooling rate, in order to obtain the correct crystallinity content in the final product. The approach of processing the material in the amorphous state would allow lower processing temperatures, however the crystallization would not be satisfactory (cold crystallization). A new approach, based on hybrid semicrystalline-amorphous thermoplastic composites has been considered, potentially overcoming the above mentioned problem and is currently under investigation in the frame of the H2020 NHYTE project.

The concept of this novel approach was discussed in the 9th International Conference on Times of Polymers and Composites (TOP 2018) that was held in Ischia, Italy from 17-21 June, 2018 through an interesting presentation under the title “Hybrid Semicrystalline-Amorphous Thermoplastic Composites for Aeronautical Applications” that was conducted by our Italian colleague M. Iannone (Leonardo).
