Esprit: New Materials and Processing Methods Explained
On 18th January 2012 the partners of the Esprit project presented their first results to the potential end users at the Information Event in Kaiserslautern.
The Esprit project has a duration of 3.5 years, the end date being March 2012. Goal of this project is the development of Self Reinforced Polymer composites (SRP’s). In the first 2 years the partners developed a new material group which are all thermoplastic composites based on the principle of having a reinforcement and matrix of the same basic polymer family which offers the advantages of being lighter in weight for equivalent stiffness, having improved recyclability and much improved impact resistance.
