New Eco-Friendly Flame-Retardant Carbon Plastic Created

SEATTLE (Waste 360): A research team from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology’s (KIST) Institute of Advanced Composite Materials has created a flame-retardant carbon-fiber-reinforced composite material (CFRP).

CFRP is a composite material that contains carbon fiber and is widely used in the aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding and sports equipment industries. 

Head researcher Dr. Yong chae Jung said, "We have created a composite material with an expanded range of application that is a dramatic improvement over conventional carbon fiber-reinforced plastic in terms of flame-retardancy, mechanical rigidity, and recyclability. These improved traits are significant in that they determine the range of application of said composite material." He added, "We will be reviewing the structure of this composite material to achieve even further improved properties and to further expand the range of its application."
