Summary In this study, UHMWPE fiber reinforced PE film by film stacking method was prepared. Reinforcement configuration was chosen unidirectional material and knitted fabrics. The effects of molding temperature on mechanical properties were investigated. Nevertheless specimens had low fiber volume fraction, the higher strength was obtained due to high interfacial strength. The most important fabrication point of this composite was molding temperature. The molding temperature should be determined between the melting temperature of fiber and matrix.
