|Abstract(s):||In this paper the results from the first part of a study on the glass fibre contents of PP plates and their properties is presented. Focus is made on the effect of the fibre volume fraction and holding pressure on the experimental as-moulded shrinkage in the flow and across flow directions. Data is also presented on the post-moulding shrinkage. For the experimental work, PP with different volume fraction of glass fibre (0, 0.1, 0.2 and 0.25) was used. The mouldings are edge gated flat rectangular plates. The moulding process was continuously monitored with pressure transducers.|
