The invention discloses herein is a process for manufacturing waste textile fiber reinforced polymer composites, using spandex or polyspandex fabric waste blending with crushed and/or recycled and/or virgin polypropylene or high impact polystyrene. The fabric waste is crushed in to particles of size 100µm - 700µm and cleaned and blended with crushed and/or recycled and/or virgin polypropylene or high impact polystyrene and also with adhesive modifiers and/or plasticizers in accordance with predetermined ratios depending on the final product requirement. The mixture is pre-heated up to a temperature of 70°C - 90°C to take off the moisture therein and then subject to extrusion via a twin-screw extruder while controlling the barrel temperature between 160°C-220°C and the nozzle temperature increased to 2% to 10% of the moulding machine to achieve waste textile fiber reinforced polymer composite pallets.

Inventor: ANTONELLI MARCELLO, ANTONELLI MARTA
The invention relates to a method for producing a flat flexible composite material comprising a support layer made of a textile material and a cover layer made of wood veneer connected thereto. a groove structure is engraved into the wood veneer of the cover layer by means of laser engraving. In this case, the structure to be engraved is produced and read into a control device of a laser engraving apparatus, the composite material is placed on a work table and a laser head connected to the control device is activated in order to engrave the structure into the wood veneer of the covering layer. The invention provides that at least two laser heads of the laser engraving device connected to the control device are activated in order to simultaneously engrave the structure by means of the laser beam of a respective laser head into adjacent regions of the wood veneer of the cover layer of the composite material assigned to a respective laser head, wherein the laser heads are controlled in such a way that, in an overlap section of the adjacent regions of the composite material, the structure is engraved randomly by the laser beam of in each case one or the other laser head into the wood veneer of the covering layer.

Method and device for producing a textile fibre composite
Patent number: EP4067543
Date of publication: 2022-10-05
Applicant(s): MASCHINENFABRIK RIETER
Inventor: GRÜN THEO, BAUMANN MARKUS
The invention relates to a method for producing a textile fibre composite. According to said method, a fibre mass (3) is separated into individual fibres (2) by means of an opening roller (5) integrated into a housing (6). The fibres leave the housing through a fibre outlet opening (10) by being detached from the opening roller at the latest at a knock-off edge (20) of the fibre outlet opening (10) and entering a fibre feed channel (11). The fibre feed channel is oriented towards a fibre collecting surface (23) and has a mouth (12). The fibres are then fed to the rotating, evacuated fibre-collecting surface (23) having a Perforation, deposited there, compacted and transported away. No negative pressure is applied to the mouth (12) of the fibre feed channel (11) and the fibres are thereby released from the opening roller without negative pressure and reach a fibre guide surface (19) of the fibre feed channel (11). In a corresponding device, the end of the cover surface (22) facing away from the opening roller (5) is at a distance (A) from the fibre collection surface (23), so that the opening (12) of the fibre feed channel (11) is free of negative pressure.

Formable and tear resistant polymeric composite
Patent number: WO2022/263585
Date of publication: 2022-12-22
Applicant(s): CANCO HUNGARY INVEST
Inventor: TEATHER ERIC, ELFERING BERND, HAUSMANN JOHANNES
A formable and tear resistant polymeric composite is both formable, such as through thermal forming, and tear resistant, wherein the composite has a high resistance to cut propagation. This combination of properties is achieved by combing an inner formable portion with a tear resistant outside portion and an inside portion, which may also be configured to be tear resistant. The inner formable portion includes a plurality of oriented polymer layers that are bound together by a lower melting temperature inner adhesive and enables thermal forming of the composite. The outside portion includes a woven fabric including polymeric strands, such as tapes, that are preferably oriented to increase strength and tear resistance. The separation of the woven fabric layers from the inner portion enables the composite to be formed into a shape, such as a shell for luggage, while having improved tear resistance.
