9.2 Guidelines


• Employ joining elements that can be chemically or physically destroyed (Examples 9.12) • Make the breaking points easily accessible and recognisable • Provide the products with information for the user about the characteristics of crushing separation

Examples 9.10 Marco Capellini carried out research for Nordica on water-pressure separation of the ski-boot materials. The separation is conducted by applying water-jet technology to the joints. Example 9.10 The route of a water-jet for material separation

9.11 Stanford University has developed a TV set design in which during production a nichrome wire is inserted into the CRT in order to facilitate separating processes and decrease recycling costs.

Example 9.11 CRT equipped with separation wire, Stanford University
