Poly(olefin ketone) terpolymer having excellent mechanical properties was synthesized and composite materials of poly(olefin ketone) containing polyurethane/amino silane functionalized glass fibers were prepared. The compatibilities between the functionalized glass fiber and the polymer were characterized by observing the fracture surfaces of the composites using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Mechanical properties of composites with different contents, diameters, lengths, and binders of glass fibers were also studied using universal testing machine (UTM). The introduction of suitably functionalized glass fiber into the poly(olefin ketone) produces composite materials having excellent mechanical properties and they are very promising alternative materials for the engineering plastic applications.
