Self reinforcing composites (SRC) are known to have a narrow processing window due to the same material system for matrix and reinforcement. In this study, a systematic study was carried out to determine the optimum consolidation process of SRC considering static and time dependent deformation behavior. It was shown that very little change in the processing condition influenced significantly the mechanical behavior of consolidated SRCs, e.g., the mechanical strength can be doubled within 10 degree change in temperature, the reason of which was scrutinized with structural analysis such as DSC and XRD and mechanical test such as T-peeling, tensile, and creep tests.
