  • Patent number: 9205636
    Abstract: Process for producing a laminate being built of at least two monolayers of polymeric tapes, the polymeric tapes having a tensile strength of at least 200 MPa, said process comprises the steps of forming a first monolayer of polymeric tapes by pre-tensioning the polymeric tapes and subsequently positioning the polymeric tapes under tension in a unidirectional, parallel manner, forming at least a second monolayer over the first monolayer in the same manner the first monolayer is formed, thereby stacking the at least two monolayers of polymeric tapes in such a way that the direction of the polymeric tapes is the same in every monolayer and that the polymeric tapes of each monolayer are offset to the tapes of the adjoining monolayer above or below that monolayer consolidating the thus stacked monolayers of polymeric tapes to obtain a laminate.

  • Patent number: 8088239
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a laminate of polymeric tapes is provided. Polymeric tapes of the core-cladding type are used, in which the core material has a higher melting temperature than the cladding material. The method includes pretensioning the polymeric tapes, and positioning the polymeric tapes and consolidating the polymeric tapes to obtain the laminate. The positioning is carried out in two, three, four or more planes. The polymeric tapes are arranged in each plane in a parallel, side-by-side relationship in a first direction, the polymeric tapes of each plane are offset in a second direction relative to the polymeric tapes in an adjacent plane, the second direction being substantially perpendicular to the first direction. The polymeric tapes of the laminate are unidirectionally arranged in a single direction in all of the two, three, four or more planes.
