Cobra focuses on parts recycling

Cobra International will showcase a new way of recycling and reusing epoxy resin windsurf parts at JEC World, taking place from 3–5 March 2020 in Paris, France.

According to the company, it has worked with Recyclamine resin supplier Aditya Birla to set up a low temperature recycling process that can break down epoxy composite windsurf fins, production waste, unused parts and production tooling, recovering reinforcement fabrics for reuse and a thermoplastic resin compound that can be used for Cobra’s plastic accessory components.

Cobra will also showcase a range of examples of its prepreg carbon fiber parts, including a full carbon motorcycle swing arm, as well as materials for the drone and autonomous vehicle markets.
