As Seen In CompositesWorld

Composites recycling is gaining traction
Although CW’s coverage of composites recycling dates back over a decade, informal statistics still show that only ~2% of composites-related companies are active recyclers. That said, three years since our most recent feature on the subject, there is demonstrably greater interest and activity, and real applications of recycled fiber are growing.

Another opportunity to meet, and learn, in Paris
At the JEC World 2017, improvements in materials and processes were present at nearly every stand, with the emphasis on automotive-capable production speeds.

Hexcel invests in Carbon Conversions Inc.
Working collaboratively, Hexcel and CCI will work to advance aerospace and industrial applications for reclaimed carbon fiber.

Ex-Toray executive joins Carbon Conversions
Keith Graham, previously with Toray Carbon Fibers America, will lead business development at CC

Supply and demand: Advanced fibers (2016)
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs

Report from IBEX 2015
As always, IBEX supplied new products, processes and education, not only to boatbuilders, but to the composites industry overall.

Recycling specialist MIT-RCF becomes Carbon Conversions
The name change is designed to emphasize the company's emphasis on the supply of high-quality, advanced materials.

SCRA hires Dr. Jim Sutter and announces Construct architectural affiliate contract win
Sutter will oversee Mantech composite programs while Construct will build a 13m recycled carbon fiber structure using MIT RCF materials.

Supply and demand: Advanced fibers (2015)
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs.

CAMX 2014 show report
Bigger, better and more inclusive than any previous U.S. composites trade event, the inaugural show turns North American eyes forward to the future.

Recycled carbon fiber update: Closing the CFRP lifecycle loop
Commercial production of recycled carbon fiber currently outpaces applications for it, but materials characterization and new technology demonstrations promise to close the gap.

CAMISMA’s car seat back: Hybrid composite for high volume
Recycled fibers, in-situ polymerized PA12 and steel inserts combined in one-shot process to cut weight 40 percent at competitive cost, cycle time and safety.

2014 JEC Europe Review
The composites world met again in Paris, vibrant, stronger, and more forward-looking than ever before.

VX Aerospace: Small company, big performance
Innovative design, OOA manufacturing and C-PLY laminate construction produce “big fabricator” aerostructures in fewer steps at low cost.

Reselling, reusing composite materials and parts
The more carbon and glass fiber is used, the more it's thrown away. How the industry copes with reusable material will matter much in the coming decades. What do you do with your usable scrap?

Recycling carbon fiber back into the automobile
There is some hope on the near horizon for reclaiming carbon fibers from the estimated 40 to 60 percent scrap volume that results from the manufacture of automotive CFRP.

Automotive CFRP: The shape of things to come
CAFE and CO2 emission standards will drive auto OEMs to fully examine the physics of fuel economy, but will that, at last, steer them toward extensive use of carbon fiber composites?

HPC for Aircraft Interiors Conference review
Colocated with Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas, CompositesWorld’s High-Performance Composites for Aircraft Interiors Conference focused on ways to get more composites inside the aircraft.

Show highlights: ACMA's COMPOSITES 2012
The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) hosted the COMPOSITES 2012 conference and trade show Feb. 21-23 in Las Vegas, Nev., USA. CompositesWorld was there and offers highlights of presentations and new products.

SAMPE Tech 2011 in Texas
The Society’s annual fall gathering fills an exhibition hall this year nearly as big as the host state.
