Recycling of Thermoset Based Composites
Recycling is now an important subject when dealing with most materials, in fact most often it is considered as an essential criterion in selecting a material for a particular application. In numerous engineering applications, thermoplastic composites have been advocated solely as the material in preference to thermosets in view of their recyclability factor alone. However thermosets are still preferred in areas in which elevated temperature and chemical resistance are critical. In other words the importance of thermoset matrices in composites are still necessary although with the availability of the so called engineering thermoplastics.
