POST DOC IN REcycling by Reactive Extrusion

PA/Glass fiber recycling by reactive extrusion (PDF téléchargeable)

Project:
The objective is to develop performing materials from chemical recycling of PA/Glass Fibers using the reactive extrusion process. The driving idea is to reduce the viscosity of the PA by chemical modification in order to limit the breakup of glass fibers while in situ synthesis of an organic crosslinked phase in order to regenerate the polyamide/glass fibers interphase. The study aims to go from the fundamental aspects of the reaction/structuration to the scaling-up of the reactive extrusion process. Morphology evolution will be also evaluated. Besides, specific properties such as thermal, mechanical, creep will be deeply scrutinized.

Skills:
Polymer chemistry, polymer processing, polymer formulation
