Textile grids for long fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites made by injection molding
The mechanical properties of fiber reinforced thermoplastics can be improved by long fiber reinforcements. The lattices developed for this purpose combine reinforcing fibers and a thermoplastic component. By activating the latter, the reinforcing lattices are pre-consolidated for subsequent processing by injection molding. This is exemplified by a bus seat made of the new composite material. This technique allows for innovative lightweight design for automotive, machine, and plant construction.

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.
