Abstract:
    It is unique technique of producing low cost thermoplastic Uni-directional prepregs for composites. Any # of plies in any required direction for composite can be manufactured using this technique.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Below are the need which my idea will fulfill, Production of UD prepregs and composite High productivity of prepregs Low cost Longer shelf life Easy manufacturing and desired fiber % volume in UD prepregs
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Thermoplastic prepreg composite industry will be main target of this project. For advance advance application like ballistic protection
How will the solution works
    Textile based knitted reinforcement will be produced using inlay structure with two different types of yarn i.e. Thermoplastic and high performance yarn. The loop structure of knitted structure will melt when placed in hot press machine leaving only straight inlay yarn forming UD composite
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Due to high cost and complex manufacturing process of AFP, its use is restricted in aircrafts & frames and high value products only. Our focus in this project will to produce UD prepreg for medium-high value products. Our solution is different as it uses textile based yarn for resin.
