Product description

Toray Cetex® TC1000 Premium is a high-end thermoplastic composite utilizing the amorphous PEI polymer for outstanding toughness and an inherently outstanding fire, smoke, and toxicity performance (< 15/15 OSU).

With over 30 years in flight, Toray Cetex® TC1000 Premium is utilized in a consistently growing number of applications.
The material has gained a wide array of qualifications at Airbus, Boeing, and many other airframe OEMs. Compared to
its semi-crystalline counterparts, Toray Cetex® TC1000 Premium can be used to achieve even shorter cycle times in part production. The material exhibits a superior bondability, which makes it very suitable for hybrid assemblies consisting
of different materials.

Toray Cetex® TC1000 is available as a UD tape and as a fabric prepreg with woven carbon, glass, or aramid reinforcements. It is typically supplied in pre-consolidated reinforced
thermoplastic laminates (RTLs) of varying thicknesses. Laminates and prepregs are available in black, cream white, gray, and natural (amber) resin colors.
