In accordance with the basic demand of the automotive industry, like reducing weight, lower emission

values and fuel economy, researchers are working on Thermoplastic Composites (TPC) in the fields of developing,

producing and recycling. The main reason of this is that Thermoplastic Composites have a lower density, higher toughness

and higher impact strength besides thermoformability. Furthermore, Automotive Industry has focused attention on

thermoplastic composites as a consequence of the importance of recyclable materials were risen. Cross ply [0/90]5

continuous glass fiber reinforced Polyamide (PA), Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP) laminated composites were

produced. The mechanical properties of these materials were obtained by appropriate tests.
