  • Publication number: 20140227516
    Abstract: A carbon fiber sizing agent imparts good bonding performance to carbon fiber, is used to reinforce a thermoplastic matrix resin, and provides a carbon fiber strand applied with the sizing agent and a fiber-reinforced composite reinforced with the carbon fiber strand. The sizing agent for carbon fiber is used to reinforce thermoplastic matrix resin. The sizing agent essentially contains a polymer component having a glass transition temperature of at least 20 deg.C. and exhibits no endothermic peaks indicating an endothermic heat of fusion due to crystalline melting of at least 3 J/g in a determination with a DSC. The weight ratio of the polymer component is 10 to 100 wt % of the nonvolatile components of the sizing agent. The polymer component is at least one component selected from the group consisting of an aromatic polyester resin, aromatic polyester-polyurethane resin and amine-modified aromatic epoxy resin.

  • Publication number: 20140148514
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to an aliphatic-aromatic copolyester of poly(butylene-co-adipate terephthalate) that is prepared from recycled polyethylene terephthalate in the presence of titanium catalyst and a phosphorous containing compound. The copolyester is contaminated with little or no ethylene glycol and/or isophthalic acid, which are artifacts of preparing the copolyester from recycled PET. Advantageously, because there is little or no contamination from ethylene glycol and/or isophthalic acid in the copolyester, there is essentially no depression in the material's melting temperature.
