- ... Fiber alignment is a critical factor in the recovery of mechanical properties of recycled carbon fiber (rCF) composites. In this study, a carding and stretching system was introduced to improve the fiber alignment of rCF in an effort to generate card web carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics (CWTs). Virgin carbon fibers were treated to replicate rCFs and ensure comparability between them. A serie ...
