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 three waste streams:
- Stream #1 : UD Tapes scrap
- Stream #2 : Sheet cut outs (full carbon and CF/GF hybrid)
- Stream #3 : 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.
