Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is a potentially valuable material which can be reclaimed and recycled into a variety of high value applications, such as in the automotive industry. The physical properties required for applications of PET can be attained by blending and/or addition of reinforcing fibres. The literature for blends and composites of PET is quite extensive, however there are areas that have not been investigated. It is necessary to explore the effect of reinforcing a blend of PET and bisphenol-A-polycarbonate (PC) with glass fibres for example. [Continues.]
