In recent decades, demands for product quality have increased along with a simultaneous cost savings. Particularly in the area of composite materials in applications such as space travel, sports equipment or functional objects, today's demands are increasing. The aim of this Master's thesis is to provide an overview of the potential uses and material properties of hybrid composites in the combination of carbon and recycled cotton or paper. The basis for this is the production of the various tensile test specimens and the subsequent testing of the maximum tensile strength of the different material combinations. Another aspect is the determination of the cost reduction, which can be made possible by the use of new material. By examining the samples, the matrix construction can save up to 47% at a maximum tensile load of 205.4 N/mm, which is 60% higher than composite carbon fiber panels. The maximum tensile load of hybrid carbon-cotton specimens is 20% lower than that of carbon paper specimens, but at the same time provides greater flexibility, enabling the use of the hybrid composite in new areas. Another advantage of cotton compared to carbon are the heat-conductive capabilities, a disadvantage in the production, however, was shown by the high absorbency of the resin. If one opts for the use of paper-carbon mixtures, especially in the production of design objects such as engine covers, exterior mirror caps or in the aircraft industry, a high cost reduction with simultaneous saving of resources by environmentally friendly recycling products can be made possible.
