Abstract: In order to form long fiber-reinforced plastic sheets into angled parts, a new process called the Laminate-Bending Process was recently developed. The process consists of preforming a prepreg into semi-cured stable shapes having various sharp bending radii. followed by laminating the preforms into a fully cured thick angle product having high strength and rigidity. A sharp 90"V-angled product of five lay-ups of preform was test fabricated under various preforming and laminating conditions by using a continuou…
