An Evaluation of S/MA Instrument Panel Recyclates 940655
The material issues pertaining to recycling glass reinforced S/MA from instrument panel offal and post consumer instrument panels are addressed in this paper. Values are assessed for the various types of recyclates obtainable from offal and post consumer instrument panels using mechanical separation. Impurity levels and impurity types as well as other factors determining value are discussed in detail. Different instrument panel constructions are evaluated including vinyl skin/PU foam variants and TPO skin/XPP foam variants.
