Abstract
Toughened carbon fibre fabric-reinforced composites were obtained by compression moulding of powder prepregs, using a modified cyclic butylene terephthalate (pCBT) matrix and a bi-directional [0°/90°] carbon fibre fabric. Modification of the pCBT matrix was done by adding small amounts of epoxy resin or isocyanates, acting as toughening agents. Homogeneous CBT/epoxy and CBT/isocyanate blends were obtained by melt blending in a lab-scale batch mixer by applying low temperatures and short proces...
