... polymeric matrix composites. Research since 1990 has expanded the concept of the fiber-matrix interface, which exists as a two-dimensional boundary, into that of a fiber- matrix interphase that exists in three dimensions ( Ref 2 ). The complexity of this interphase can best be illustrated with the use...

The main reason for the lack of widespread acceptance of thermoplastic matrices is that they tend to be more difficult to process into a composite than thermosets. However, this fact does not mean that there are no techniques to manufacture composites with thermoplastic...
