Windesheim was rewarded for their Structural Re-Use of Thermoset Composites. This innovation enables End-of-Life thermoset composites to be re-used in new products. It is a circular solution for these materials. The End-of-Life products are machined into smaller parts like strips or flakes. These smaller parts serve as reinforcing elements for new products. Some virgin resin and reinforcement have to be added but the new product is entirely made of thermoset composite components and can be re-used with the same method again when it is End-of-Life or End-of-Use.
