Abstract The tensile and fracture characteristics of pigmented ABS containing 30 wt % rubber reinforced with 30 wt % glass fibre have been examined over a range of strain-rates extending from approximately 10−4 to 10−1 sec−1 within the temperature range 293 to 353 K. The glass fibre-reinforced composite had significantly increased fracture strength compared with the base polymer but possessed decreased ductility. The marked yield point which is characteristic of the ABS base polymer was absent from the reinforced material. Two different regions were found to exist on the fracture surfaces of composite specimens. One region possessed the characteristics of a weak interfacial bond while the other showed evidence of strong, interfacial bonding. In both regions extensive fibre pull-out was observed. The variation in fracture strength and morphology with strain-rate and temperature of testing is explained in terms of the properties of an interfacial region adjacent to the fibres which possesses viscoelastic properties different from those of the bulk polymer. The effect of adiabatic heating at the crack tip is also taken into account in the high temperature—high strain rate regime.
