Application: Carbon nanostructure enhanced recycled polymer material (Patent ID: US20240092983A1)

The patent filed by Ford Motor Co. describes a composite material that includes a recycled polymer matrix with a continuous network of linked carbon nanostructures and a compatibilizer. The composition consists of at least 90 wt. % recycled polymer matrix, 0.5 wt. % to 1.0 wt. % carbon nanostructures, and about 3.0 wt. % compatibilizer. Additional components such as an advanced nucleator, antioxidant, flow enhancer, and glass bubbles can be included in varying amounts to enhance the properties of the composite material.

The claims outline the specific composition of the composite material, including the use of polypropylene as the recycled polymer matrix, the addition of various additives like antioxidants and flow enhancers, and the option to include color concentrates, flame retardants, and UV light stabilizers. The composite material aims to have specific properties such as a maximum shrink flow and shrink cross flow of about 0.6, making it suitable for use in various parts. The patent also covers variations of the composite material with different compositions and additional components to further enhance its performance and versatility in different applications.
