Abstract
A systematic study of the effects of charge composition and process parameters is presented for a prototype automotive part (a door cassette) produced by compression moulding from glass fibre and polypropylene composites. This follows previous studies (Parts I–III) of the process-property relations for commingled glass and polypropylene fabrics, glass-mat thermoplastics (GMTs) and sandwiched structures of commingled fabric shins with a GMT core. The scope and function of the component is described together with details of the moulding experiments with GMT and fabric combined as a pre-laminated sandwich and a GMT charge with local areas of fabric to provide ...
