Process chains for the production and integration of natural fiber-reinforced high-performance plastics
The Institute of Lightweight Structures TU Chemnitz innovative joining technologies for thermoplastic fiber composites and metals are being developed. The reinforcing fibers at the junction of the composite component are reoriented to suit the load, which can achieve high bond strengths to analog designs in nature. The strength-increasing effect was demonstrated on mixed compounds with deep-drawing steel DC04 and natural fiber reinforced bio-based polyethylene in shear and head-pull-tests. The characteristic values determined were compared with those of established methods with the same joining point diameter and the same combination of materials and finally, the analysis of the joint.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
