Microwave assisted curing for carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composites (WAVECOM)
Start date: Sep 1, 2012, End date: Jun 30, 2013 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"The main objective of WAVECOM project is the development of a technology suitable for carbon fiber reinforced composites manufacturing based on microwave curing of its raw materials, which includes the selection of the proper additives (dipole organic molecules or nanostructured magnetic materials) and the set up of the system at pilot plant level. A better understanding of potential distortions and residual stress effects of MW will be obtained by using Fibre Bragg Grating technology. Tooling materials and their geometrical limitations will be obtained as well. Finally, an assessment on the final properties of the composites and the benefits of this technology in economic and ecological terms will be also carried out."
