Today’s continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic parts usually allow only a very limited surface quality caused by imprint of the fiber reinforcement, inhomogeneous surface areas and the “read-through” of opposing ribs. The present work proves that styrene copolymers represent a promising new candidate for matrix polymers in fiber reinforced thermoplastics, providing both, structural performance and aesthetical appearance. Besides high gloss and low surface waviness, the styrene copolymer based system also allows high quality surface decoration, such as printing, foil lamination or conventional painting. To validate the complete processing chain, a close-to production prototype was designed and will be exhibited.
