It is shown that the fabrication of large glass-fiber reinforced plastic parts by means of transfer molding technologies makes it possible to solve technical problems that cannot be solved by using other materials. The development of accessible technologies and equipment for efficient recycling of such parts will make glass-fiber reinforced plastic a sixth technological paradigm material.

Key words

glass-fiber reinforced plastics polymer composite materials transfer molding recycling life cycle technological paradigm
