Abstract:
Creep tests under three-point bending loading were conducted at elevated temperatures for long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene in order to examine the effect of maleic anhydride modification for polypropylene matrix on the creep resistance. The high acid modification (1 wt%) significantly reduces the creep deflection at both low and high sustained loads. The residual tensile strength after 1000 hours creep also increased with an increase of maleic anhydride content. AE observation indicating an occurrence of debonding decreased with increasing acid density. The fractured surfaces show that the interfacial strength between glass fibers and matrix can be increased owing to an increase of maleic anhydride fraction.
