In self-reinforced polymer composites (SRPC) the same polymer material forms both the reinforcing fibre and the matrix phase. The current project aims to develop a biobased alternative for these composites using polylactic acid (PLA). Both the development of the reinforcing fibres, the modelling and production of the composites are being studied. The stiffness of the PLA filaments could be increased to 9 GPa by optimising processing parameters during extrusion. After consolidation to composites, promising results are obtained showing that the stiffness of the PLA SRPC can match the requirements of currently used commercial self-reinforced polypropylene composites (ca 4GPa).
