Different compositions of reinforced bar were evaluated by tensile tests.
An optimised pultrusion process at pilot plant has been obtained to produce biocompositesprofiles with bioepoxy resin. Better mechanical results in pultrusion profiles at pilot plant level are obtained by bioepoxy system and glass roving. Nevertheless, flax fibres with low twist can be used to produce pultrusion profiles and no significant differences in mechanical properties were found between profiles prepared with glass fibres and hybrid fibres (glass and flax) with unsaturated polyester (UP) resin.
The OSIRYS project is led by Tecnalia (Project Coordinators), in partnership with Acciona, AIMPLAS, ENAR and VISESA of Spain, NetComposites from the UK, Fraunhofer, SICC and Tecnaro of Germany, IVL of Sweden, Conenor and VTT of Finland, Omikron of Hungary, UNStudio from the Netherlands, Bergamo Tecnologie from Poland, Collanti Concorde from Italy, and Amorim Cork Composites from Portugal.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme.
