Product description

Toray Cetex® TC1100 is a high-end but cost-effective thermoplastic composite material, utilizing a semi-crystalline PPS polymer for excellent mechanical properties and an outstanding chemical and solvent resistance.

With over 7 million parts in flight and qualified for structural application at Airbus, Boeing, and many other airframe OEMs, Toray Cetex® TC1100 offers a great balance between cost and performance, both mechanical and chemical. The material is inherently flame resistant (< 35/35 OSU) with low smoke emission.

Besides application in aerospace, Toray Cetex® TC1100 is often the material of choice for demanding industrial applications.

Toray Cetex® TC1100 is available as a UD tape, a fabric prepreg, and as reinforced thermoplastic laminates (RTLs) of varying thicknesses. RTLs can be equipped with lightning strike protection, and carbon reinforced RTLs can be supplied with a thin glass top layer to protect a partly metallic assembly against galvanic corrosion.
