Synthesis of polylactide matrix composites by resin transfer molding

Abstract : Composite materials exhibit many advantages over traditional materials and particularly in terms of lightness, mechanical resistance or chemical resistance. [1] The development of composites meets the requirements of industrial markets for applications in the fields of transport, construction, sports and leisure. In a context of sustainable development, a growing number of studies focus on the development of composites with biobased matrices. [2] Thus, polylactide (PLA) has become a major actor and could in the long term become an alternative to petroleum-based polyolefins. [3] Regarding the processes of composite manufacture, Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) is an innovative process based on the injection, in a mold containing fibers, of a monomer and a catalyst in order to carry out in-situ the polymerization of the matrix. [4] The major advantage over conventional melt processes is the access to high fiber content while improving their wetting by the matrix. Although a wide range of thermosetting matrix resins is available on the market, there are only few commercial resins for thermoplastic matrices. Regarding academic studies, composites based on poly(ε-caprolactone), were prepared [5], but no example was reported to date with lactide monomer. In order to design PLA-based composites by RTM, tin octoate was chosen as the catalyst as it displays some of the higest activity for the polymerization of lactide. [6] Polymerization tests were first tested at the lab scale before being upscaled in the RTM process. Poly(L-lactide) (PLLA)-based composites with glass fibers as reinforcement were obtained (figure 1). [7] The resulting PLLA matrix exhibits conversions up to 98 % along with high molar masses of up to 78,000 g.mol-1, when the polymerization is carried out under dynamic vacuum, with a good impregnation of the fibers by the matrix (figure 2). 1.
