NetComposites will be displaying automotive brackets made from recycled carbon fibre at the Composites Europe Show this month.
According to NetComposites, the parts have been developed using a new generation of high performance, low cost co-mingled carbon fibre yarns that were the outcome of the recently concluded multi-partner project, Fibrecycle. The yarns and fabrics are blended carbon/PET, manufactured from virgin recovered carbon fibre that would otherwise have gone to landfill and that these new materials have almost 100% of the stiffness of virgin materials. They can be offered at a lower cost than similar products currently available on the market. They say they are also beneficial to the environment and retain the traceability of virgin materials.
