Composite reshaping with the new 3R epoxy resin – CIDETEC

CIDETEC, one of the MC4 project partners is currently doing tests on the reshaping of composites made with their newly developed vitrimer 3R epoxy resin. Unlike conventional epoxy resins that are thermosets and therefore can’t be reused without being damaged and losing in properties, the 3R can be reshaped. Indeed, it is based on dynamic… Continue reading Composite reshaping with the new 3R epoxy resin – CIDETEC

Today, composites are mostly manufactured with synthetic raw materials like carbon or glass fibres. This is because such materials display very good mechanical properties and can be used in structural and technical parts like for the aerospace market for example. The problem is that 80% of virgin carbon and glass fibre manufacturing is done outside… Continue reading European Independence
