|Abstract(s):||This work establishes the processing windows for the cost-efficient production of thermoplastic matrix towpregs in a recently developed powder coating equipment. Three different fibre reinforced thermoplastic matrix systems were studied: one for highly demanding markets (carbon fibre/Primospire™) and other two for commercial applications (glass/polypropylene and glass/polyvinyl chloride). The mechanical properties determined on compression moulded composite components obtained from the produced towpregs were also discussed.|
