The Implementation of Recycled Thermoset Composites in Thermoforming Molds
- Dru M. Wilson (Central Michigan University)
Composite materials are becoming more embedded in today’s products, and are used in many industries including aerospace, automotive, construction, and recreational. A few examples include: small aircraft fuselages, aircraft thrust reverse flaps, automobile driveshafts, leaf springs, car bodies, bridges, I-beams, bathtubs, countertops, golf clubs, snow boards, boats, and bicycle frames (Strong, 2000; Richardson & Lokensgard, 1997; Rosato, 1997; Foreman, 1990).
