Engineered Cementitious Composite ECC , also called Strain Hardening Cement-based Composites SHCC or more popularly as bendable concrete, is an easily molded mortar-based composite reinforced with specially selected short random fibers, usually polymer fibers.
Wood-Filled Composites Jump off the Deck. You cant be in the deck lumber distribution business and not be in composite decking, says John Pruett, a principal with strategic consulting firm Principia Partners Exton, Pa. . Heavy self-weight is the biggest issue, and the answer could be foaming.
Self-Reinforced Polymers SRPs Self-reinforced polymers SRPs are a particular family of thermoplastic composite materials in which both the reinforcing fibre and the polymer matrix are from the same polymer family
self-reinforced PP composites are now available on the mechanical properties of self-reinforced poly-meric composite materials are sensitive to both con - solidation temperature and holding time, depending on the characters of the constituting materials and fabrication method.
An Assessment of Self-Healing Fiber Reinforced Composites ABSTRACT Several reviews and books have been written concerning self-healing polymers over the last few years.
Self-reinforced composites SRCs have the ability to achieve an excellent interface between components, pure chemical functionality, and higher value as recyclable products due to their relative homogeneity compared to composites
2 Low density of the all-PP composite translates to weight savings at the same part thickness relative to glass/ PP composites. Desirable stress-strain properties result in good impact strength. The self-reinforced composite possesses a unique combination of high strain-to-failure
A design scheme for self-reinforced cementitious composites to be used for building-scale 3D printing processes is introduced. The design is based on that of engineered cementitious composites, which include dispersed short polymer fibers to generate robust tensile strain-hardening.
PDF Carbon/PP and carbon/self-reinforced PP hybrid composites have been produced by film-stacking. Tensile tests in carbon/PP composites show that the E-modulus is 15% lower than expected.
Self-reinforced composites SRCs , or single-polymer composites, in which a polymer matrix is reinforced with oriented fibers and tapes, or particles of the same polymer, are an interesting concept.
Develop hybrid self-reinforced composites with a step-increase in stiffness while maintaining a high impact performance and a failure strain above 10%; Develop hybrid structural composites with a step-increase in ductility and impact performance while maintaining a high level of stiffness;
Self reinforced polymer composites, also known as self reinforced plastics and single polymer composites, are fibre reinforced composite materials.
Curv is the worlds first self- reinforced 100% polypropylene composite offering extraordinary levels of impact resistance, light weight and high stiffness.

A New Nanotechnology Approach for Micro-crack Prevention and Impact Resistance in Self-healing Fiber-Reinforced Composites. One can also find composites in newer materials for home decking, where longevity and durability to the outside elements allows these composites to last longer without the maintenance required for wooden decks
