FORMAX, a leading global manufacturer of speciality composite reinforcements, has launched a new recycling initiative at its UK production facility. Thanks to the creation of a dedicated Recycling Division and the installation of two bespoke machines, FORMAX is now able to reprocess the majority of its glass and carbon fibre waste.The recycled materials are suitable for a variety of non-structural and structural applications across a range of industries, and a number of FORMAX’s customers are already manufacturing components using products from the division with great success.“Last year we generated over 600 tonnes of glass waste so recycling is clearly very high on our agenda, both from a position of environmental responsibility, but also from a commercial standpoint. The market for recycled materials is a growing sector with a number of significant opportunities and the creation of our new Recycling Division allows us to devote considerable time and resource into optimizing products for these processes” comments Oliver Wessely, Managing Director of FORMAX.***GLASS MULTIAXIALSFORMAX is a leading global manufacturer of E-Glass Multiaxial (Non Crimp) fabrics, for use predominantly in manufacturing components for the aerospace, automotive, marine and industrial markets.FORMAX produces a comprehensive range of glass multiaxial fabrics, including Unidirectionals, +/-45 Biaxials, 0/90 Biaxials, Triaxials, and Quadaxials.FORMAX is focused on supplying bespoke engineered fabrics with different ply weights and orientations, as well as using chopped fibre mats and other substrates to create materials optimised for our customers’ applications.Fabric weights from as low as 250gsm and up to 6,000gsm can be produced, with a variety of different fabric widths from 25mm through to 2540mm. 13.05.2013, Formax
