Composites have long been used in autos and trucks, primarily under the hood and in interiors. High-performance have used carbon fiber for many years, and now new high-speed manufacturing technology is allowing carbon fiber to move into production vehicles.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance provide you with the latest information about closed mold technologies and the advantages, techniques and opportunities that the closed mold process has over open molding.
As more carbon composites are used on structural car components, how will crash damage be assessed and repairs be made?

Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.Arkema joins thermoplastic resins recycling project CompositesWorld
