Efficiency in Textile Reinforcements for Injection Molded Structures

Due to an increased use of Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP) components for the reduction of energy consumption in mobile applications, the condition monitoring of these lightweight structures is of increasing importance. For the combination of the textile reinforcements and sensor systems in efficient injection molding process, textile fabrics have to be developed, which allows the fixation of sensor systems, contacting and embedding in the injected thermoplastic melt. A new kind of non crimp fabric in a multilayer design, is considered particularly advantageous, whose outer fiber layer impregnation will be completed in the injection molding process. Apart from lower manufacturing costs of this kind of prepreg, the impregnation process with the injected melt leads to an anchoring between the textile structure and thermoplastic melt as observed in in-mold decoration processes.
