    Polypropylene = plastic = resin

    Filament is a form that the PP/resin/plastic has been processed into.

    If the products are melted down as suggested you will have what’s known as glass reinforced Polypropylene a low cost composite suitable for furniture/auto parts and many other things. GFPP is a resin based composite which is very difficult to reuse, although in this case the first generation might be pretty good material due to the long glass fiber length.

    Nice work with a new material by the students though.
