Organic sheets with deep-drawing ability made of recycled carbon fibers
The recycling of carbon fibers (CF) requires a controlled alignment of fibers as long as possible in the component. This goal was pursued with the textile development of hybrid staple fiber yarns made of recycled CF (rCF) and PA 6 fibers, which were further processed to non-crimp-fabrics to be pressed to organic sheets. Although the rCF form an organic sheet with quasi-continuous reinforcement in the molten state, during thermoforming, a plastic deformation similar to the deep-drawing process can be realized. The effect of the plastic deformability of staple fiber reinforced polymer composites (SFRPC) was analyzed in tempered tensile tests.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
