Abstract
This study assesses the use of infrared welding for a carbon fabric reinforced polyphenylene sulphide. Infrared light is used in order to melt the thermoplastic matrix of the two components, after which they are joined together under pressure. Welding parameters such as power of the infrared lights, heating time, contact pressure and consolidation time are optimised. Next, a series of joints is fabricated and the interlaminar behaviour of the weld is characterised. For the mode I behaviour, the Double Cantilever Beam test (DCB) is considered, whereas for mode II crack growth, the End Notch Flexure test (ENF) is used. Results are compared to the interlaminar behaviour of the base material. It can be concluded that the infrared process proves very interesting for the material under study and that joints can be manufactured with fracture toughness values equal or higher to the base material, both for mode I and mode II, but that a slightly different failure behaviour manifests itself.
