Abstract [en]

Large amounts of cotton/PET textiles are wasted every year due to economically unfeasible separation of cotton and PET from waste textiles. These waste textiles were reused to form composites for technical applications and their properties were studied in this project. The waste textile, bed linen, used in this project comes from local hospital. The aim of this study is to produce composites from cotton/PET waste textiles and characterize by mechanical and thermal analysis. The effect of orientation of the fibers was studied and the processing parameters such as temperature, pressure and time of compression were optimized.
