Vartega

vartega
Vartega is a recycler of advanced materials – specifically strong and lightweight carbon fiber – used in the aerospace, automotive, wind energy, and sporting goods businesses.

Profile Description

APPLICATIONS / PROPERTIES

Recycled carbon fiber can be used to reduce vehicle weight – increasing range and fuel economy while reducing emissions. Recycled carbon fiber has been used extensively in consumer goods as well as the oil and gas industry. Vartega’s recycled carbon fiber features virgin mechanical properties as well as minimal thermal expansion and high electrical conductivity.

LENGTHS & FORMATS

– Chopped: Nominal 1/4” (6mm), 1/2” (12mm), 3/4” (18mm), 1” (25mm), custom lengths available

– Milled (150-400 micron)

– Pelletized formats as a drop-in replacement for applications using virgin carbon fiber.

SIZING

Recycled chopped and milled carbon fiber can be compounded with most engineering thermoplastics at various fiber volume fractions. Typical carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics include ABS, PA6, PA66, PBT, PC, PE, PEI, PEEK, PEK, POM, PP, PPS, PSU, PU. Thermoplastic specific sizings can be applied to improve dispersibility and interface adhesion.
