Fibre reinforced plastics are important designing materials. Their excellent properties in fibre direction and their low density make them an essential material in lightweight construction. Besides their high specific strength and stiffness, the individual malleability is a special feature. The variety of the composition of the layers, the direction of the fibres and the amount of the layers allow the designing engineer to create each component the best possible way. Thanks to their good long-term properties composite materials are mainly produced with thermoset resins these days. However, the advantages of thermoplastic resins like the short processability, the recyclability and the good mechanical properties will lead to their increased use in the future. Currently there are only few material parameters of fibre reinforced thermoplastics. In the course of this thesis material data of carbon reinforced thermoplastics with different matrices shall be generated. Therefore, comparatively cheap polypropylene will be compared with polyamides like PA 6, PA 12, PA 410 and a polyphthalamide based on PA 10T. The determination of the plastics is facilitated by a DSC-analysis. The fibre volume fraction is determined by a TGA-analysis. The mechanical parameters are generated with a tensile test, a bending test and a test of apparent interlaminar shear strength. Besides the mechanical and the thermal properties, the availability and the processability of the materials materials are considered for the evaluation.
