Article summary:

1. The non-isothermal crystallization behavior of continuous glass fiber-reinforced poly(ether ether ketone) (CGF/PEEK) composites was studied using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The introduction of glass fiber in pure PEEK resulted in a hindrance effect on the movement of polymer chains, leading to lower onset and peak temperatures of crystallization.

2. The degree of crystallinity (Xc) decreased as the cooling rate increased, indicating less time for polymer chains to rearrange and form larger crystals with fewer defects. The total crystallization time also decreased with increasing cooling rate.

3. Non-isothermally crystallized CGF/PEEK composites exhibited a double-melting behavior in DSC melting curves, which may be attributed to the existence of two different crystal units in these composites.
