Abstract [en]

Composites are the materials which can be used for a wide variety of applications and products such as sports equipment, aerospace and marine because of light and stiffness properties. Composites are often made from thermoset resin with glass fibers. In this study, two ways of recycling composites were evaluated, which are microwave pyrolysed composites (MGC) and mechanical composites (GC). These glass fibers were going to be compounded with Polypropylene (PP) or Maleic Anhydride Modified Polypropylene (MAPP) and then injection moulded the sample by Micro-compounder. In order to get better adhesion to the polymer, a coating was added. The Neoxil 5682- polypropylene water emulsion was evaluated. The samples were characterized by Tensile Testing, Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), Different Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) to find a optimum combination of recycled glass fiber reinforced polymer. Microwave pyrolysis is a new research area. The glass fiber, polymer oil and gas can be obtained by heating the composite with microwaves to in an inert atmosphere. The polymer oil can be distillated and then evaluated with GC-MS; in order to obtain the chemical compositions.
