The applied pressure, processing temperature and holding time influence the consolidation of thermoplastic laminates. A model to optimise the processing parameters is proposed. The influence of heating rate, processing temperature and pressure is investigated. Short textile impregnation times, in the order of seconds, are predicted. The model is validated in an experimental programme.
