Composite material innovations from TenCate at Farnborough Air Show

5 July 2016

This press release was issued as TenCate Advanced Composites, prior to our acquisition by Toray Industries and name change to Toray Advanced Composites in 2019.

TenCate Advanced Composites, a leading supplier of advanced thermoset and thermoplastic composites materials to the aerospace industry will be exhibiting their diverse range of material solutions during the 2016 Farnborough International Air Show, Hall 3, stand B50.

Following the recent opening of their European Centre of Excellence for thermoset prepreg systems at their UK facility, TenCate will be discussing their market leading thermoset composite materials for aerospace, space & satellite and communications markets within Europe. Together with a doubling of capacity, the extended facility in the United Kingdom now houses a carbon-free manufacturing line, which is dedicated to the manufacture of electrically pure materials. Radomes manufactured using TenCate’s industry leading low loss, low dielectric constant thermoset prepregs will be on display during the event.

Also on display is a thermoplastic composite rudder demonstrator, manufactured and designed by Aerosud using TenCate Cetex® reinforced thermoplastic laminates (RTLs), which exhibits an innovative induction welding technique in the processing of thermoplastic composites for aerostructures.
