Customisize

Recycling carbon fibres for stronger composites

CUSTOMISIZE brings a second life to carbon fibres that arrive at their end of life. The project develops new ways to recycle carbon fibres by sizing them to improve mechanical properties of composite materials.

How to

recycle

carbon

fibres?

The project is organized in four main steps

1

Study of the existing sizing materials

2

Recycling of carbon fibres by steam water thermolysis

3

Application and characterisation of the newly sized fibres

4

Manufacture of composites with the newly sized fibres

CUSTOMISIZE is involving all partners in the production chain: material suppliers, recycling industries, final part manufacturers, as well as the aircraft industry as end users.
