GARDN II Projects (2014-2019)

New 4th Round Project

Reuse of Uncured Aerospace Preimpregnated Composite Materials in Commercial Applications

BC-21

 

Objective:

This project will further the knowledge, experience and capability to reuse of uncured aerospace grade pre-impregnated (prepreg) materials for the Canadian Aerospace industry. The outcome will be further “greening” of the aerospace composite supply chain through:

  • reduction of the volume of landfilled, incinerated or acid/solvent reclaimed prepreg waste
  • redirection of prepreg waste into value-added commercial products demanding high quality fibres and high performance epoxy matrix systems
  • industry development and growth through the creation of a new “reclaimed prepreg” material supplier(s)
  • development of new regional commercial opportunities, and
  • cost avoidance through the reduction of uncured prepreg scrap disposal costs.
