Customisize

Project

Improve the strength of composites containing recycled carbon fibres

CUSTOMISIZE develops new carbon fibres’ sizing methods to improve the interfacial adhesion between recycled carbon fibres and polymeric and cementitious matrices. The goal is to improve the strength, toughness and environmental stability of the composites manufactured with the sized fibre.

Objectives

Improve the adhesion between recycled carbon fibres and matrices

Improve strength and toughness of the reinforced composites

Reduce the environmental impact

Main strategies developed

 

 

  1. Creation of active points in the carbon fibre using steam water thermolysis
  2. Creation of active points in the carbon fibre using plasma treatment
  3. Sizing of carbon fibres by polymeric bath and press
