Mechanical and physical properties of epoxy composites containing CFRP powder wastesThomas C. | Cimentada A. | Diego S. | Casado J.A. | Carrascal I.A. |
In this research, carbon powder wastes obtained from the cutting process of laminate composites have been incorporated into epoxy matrix phase in order to improve the mechanical characteristics. Physical and mechanical properties and thermal behavior have been analyzed. Results show that carbon powder wastes incorporated to new epoxy matrix phases act basically as reinforcement. This allows for the recycling of the residues as well as improves some properties of the composites.
