Historically, thermoset resins have been used as matrix for CFRPs [ 4 , 5 , 6 ], but the requirements for thermoplastic matrix have been elevated during the past decade [ 7 , 8 , 9 ]. Compared with thermosets, thermoplastics are inherently tough [ 10 , 11 , 12 ], recyclable, and have an unlimited shelf life [ 13 ]. However, CFRPs are more difficult to manufacture using thermoplastic matrix due to its poor processibility [ 14 ].

Currently, several methods, such as pultrusion and hot compression molding, have been developed to fabricate CFRPs with thermoplastic matrix [ 15 ]. Among them, the use of thermoplastic towpregs is one convenient way to fabricate CFRPs [ 16 ].

So far, thermoplastic towpregs can be made by different processing technologies, such as wet powder impregnation or dry powder impregnation.

The powder-coating process draws the tow through a cloud of resin particles then heats up to partially wet and consolidate it [ 17 ]. Besides polymer matrix, carbon fibers play a major role in the mechanical performances of final CFRPs [ 18 , 19 , 20 ]. However, due to the brittle nature of carbon fibers, the carbon-fiber tows are inherently easy to generate fuzz for during processing and thus require protection [ 21 ].

ASTM D 3171 2015

In general, the surfaces of carbon fibers are protected by coating them with a thin layer of sizing, which can also improve the wettability as well as processibility of carbon fibers [ 22 , 23 , 24 ].

The most common type of sizing agent for carbon fibers is based on epoxy [ 25 , 26 ]. This type of sizing agent can be well-compatible with thermoset matrix, but it is usually incompatible with thermoplastic matrix because the chemical and interaction mechanisms taking place at the interphase are different [ 27 , 28 ].

Therefore, thermoplastic or polymeric sizing agents are highly desired for meeting the increasing demand for CFRPs using thermoplastic matrix. So far, many thermoplastic polymers, such as polyamide, polyether sulfone, and polyetheretherketon, have been used as sizing agents for carbon fibers [ 22 , 29 , 30 , 31 , 32 ].

The type of sizing agent to be used depends on the characteristics of the thermoplastic matrix. In this work, different types of sizing agents for carbon fibers were studied to verify their compatibility for the fabrication of thermoplastic towpregs via a powder-coating process. Styrene-acrylic sizing agents with different formulations were compared with the traditional epoxy sizing agent in terms of protection and thermal stability. Polyamide 6 PA6 is used as the matrix resin to prepare the towpregs due to its good chemical resistance, processibility, mechanical properties, and low cost compared to other polyamides [ 36 ].

The influences of styrene-acrylic sizing agents on the bending rigidity of carbon-fiber tows and towpregs were investigated by the cantilever and Kawabata methods. The towpregs with different styrene-acrylic sizing agents were used to fabricate composite panels by hot compression molding.

Included in this category of composite materials there are the plastics reinforced with hybrid fabrics of high mechanical performance, ie, reinforcing fabrics made of synthetic fiber 3 - 6. The present study aims the investigation of the use of high-performance hybrid fabrics in manufacturing composite laminates with specific mechanical properties in the presence of geometric discontinuities.

It is important to highlight here, the innovative aspect of this study with emphasis on the use of the hybrid reinforcement fabrics and the detailed analysis of the developed mechanical fracture characteristics.

Thus, an epoxy-based vinyl ester thermosetting polymer resin, reinforced with 8 layers of a bidirectional hybrid fabric consisting of Kevlar fibers in the warp direction and carbon fibers in the weft direction , was produced.

The mechanical behavior of this CL was studied with both experimental and analytical focus in order to determine its mechanical and residual properties, in addition to the damage mechanism characteristics, considering the anisotropy of the hybrid fabric and the presence of geometric discontinuity circular hole. The presence of a hole triggers stress concentration, a highly complex phenomenon in composite materials that has significant practical importance since its presence in structural elements is, normally, the cause of failures 7 - In the analysis of stresses in laminate composites with geometric discontinuities, it is necessary to understand the failure mode, the adequate use of failure theories, and the effects on the global response of the composite laminate The experimental technique is also important when analyzing the effects caused by stress concentration in laminate composites containing geometric discontinuities.

The initial analytical study is based on the calculation of the residual properties, using the concepts established by ASTM standard D 18 ; such as residual strength RS and residual modulus RM , both obtained experimentally.

Next, these residual properties, and the PSC Point Stress Criterion and ASC Average Stress Criterion failure theories contained in the literature 19 were used in semi-empirical determination of the characteristic distances do and ao of the stress concentration area surrounding the hole.

The aforementioned study considered the anisotropy of the hybrid fabric used as reinforcement and was conducted under uniaxial tensile loading. As a complementary study, the CL was physically characterized using bulk density and calcination tests to obtain the contents percentages of the microstructural parameters matrix, fibers and voids.

As a final step of the experiment, a global comparative study between the influences of anisotropy and geometric discontinuity on CL behavior was carried out, considering these parameters separately and simultaneously, in order to better understand the results and its influence. During this stage, the damage mechanism process of the laminate was studied and mechanical fracture was analyzed using scanning electron microscopy SEM.
