Within Work Package 2, CIDETEC and EURECAT have started recently to characterize the first laminates manufactured with 3R resin. The results will feed the thermoforming simulation models that are being developed by ALTAIR and also the design of the demonstrators in Work Package 5. The tests are being carried out under several conditions regarding specimen preconditioning and testing temperatures.
