KreiFaDeck project

With the financial support of the European Union, ThermHex Waben GmbH is developing in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems (IMWS), a recyclable PET-based fibre composite face sheets for the inline production of cost-efficient thermoplastic sandwich structures. The overall objective of project KreiFaDeck is to investigate a process to produce novel PET-based semi-finished products consisting of PET/GF-UD tape or crossply face sheets as well as less anisotropic PET-impregnated fiber mat sandwich face sheets. Together with the already existing lightweight construction potential of the honeycomb core sandwich elements, the project approach will achieve a significant increase in the sustainability aspect as well as the recyclability of the components used.
