Abstract

Glass-fiber reinforced composites, based on characteristic compositions simulating post-consumer `curbside tailings', have been molded into thin-section parts. Structural, and flow analyses were performed with commercial software on different types of plastic parts. Most of the data used in the simulation were experimentally generated on compatibilized HDPE based polymer blends containing 20% short glass fibers. Issues concerned with injection molding and product performance are discussed.
