    Abstract

    Experimental data of microwave pultrusion processing was gathered and will lead to the optimization of pulling speed and input power. A cylindrical, brass, single mode applicator was used to heat the graphite/epoxy composite prepreg tape using 2450 MHz single frequency and 2000-3000 MHz variable frequency processing, Extent of cure increased with an increase in microwave input power and a decrease in pulling speed for single frequency processing. Tensile and flexural strength measurements were made. Temperature gradients across the width of the prepreg decreased from approximately 40 °C to 10 °C with the application of variable frequency processing.
