A REVIEW ON FLEXIBLE THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE LAMINATE FOR ANTI-STAB APPLICATIONS
Research on anti-stab utilizing various types of fiber reinforcement and matrix materials in the production of laminated composite have been increased very rapidly over the past decade to investigate the performances and behavior of anti-stab. This review summarized recent research on production of laminated composite, thickness, design of laminates, various types of materials used, international requirement standards and the failure mechanism on the composite after the anti-stab testing. This review focused on thermoplastic as matrix materials due to good flexibility, stiffness and strength. The review showed that a proper hybridization through laminate system may make the hybrid panel very promising for anti-stab enhancement; however, lot of studies is still needed in the fields of preparation and stability, characterization and applications to overcome the challenges. Thus, the study propose a new flexible composite laminate for anti-stab applications by combining two types of reinforcement materials and embedding them into a proper matrix material.
