TenCate Advanced Composites at Composites Europe 2017

18 September 2017

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 will be highlighting their latest new products in both thermoset and thermoplastic technologies for leading automotive and aerospace applications at Composites Europe (Suttgart 19-21 September), Hall 6 stand C40.

New products include:

  • TenCate Cetex® TC1225 – An engineered PAEK-based thermoplastic prepreg that harnesses high performance mechanics with lower processing temperatures for aerospace applications. Suitable for overmolding with PEEK, the PAEK composite materials from TenCate enable form freedom and part consolidation in the highest performance applications. Available in carbon-based UD tape, laminates and semi-preg fabric formats.
  • TenCate TC380 - a toughened epoxy with outstanding compression after impact and open hole compression strengths, making this system ideal for aerostructure applications on helicopters, UAVs and military aircraft.
  • TenCate E732 – a toughened epoxy prepreg that achieves a full Tg of 170°C (338°F) in 4 minutes at 160°C (320°F), for press moulding processing. Suitable for high volume industrial applications, this prepreg system has a robust processing window and can also be used in autoclave processing.

Innovative applications of TenCate Advanced Composites’ materials are also on display, including a high performance ultra-lightweight road racing bike, sporting the worlds lightest rims, made using TenCate thermoset prepregs and an overmolded automotive door panel from CCP Grandsen. Thermoformed and overmolded in a single shot, using TenCate Cetex C/PPS thermoplastic laminates.
