Recycling @ JECWorld 2022

How is the the recycling behavior of TAFNEX™ and what are the mechanical properties of these recycled grade? To answer those questions we started an investigation with focusing on two waste streams:

  • Stream #1 : Sheet cut outs (full carbon and CF/GF hybrid)
  • Stream #2 : Overmolded parts containing TAFNEX Sheets

Mechanical recycling was used for each stream and processed to recycled compounds. These compounds were tested and compared to commercial available grades.

Recycling stream #1a: Sheets full carbon

Recycling stream #1b: CF/GF hybrid sheets

Recycling stream #2: Parts
