To meet the increasing demands for its Tepex thermoplastic composite materials, Bond-Laminates has commissioned a new production facility next to its previous site in Brilon, Germany.
The expansion includes a production facility of 1800 m2 as well as 400 m2 of office space. With investments in further production equipment, the annual production capacity has been increased from 400 tons to 1200 tons/year.
Tepex thermoplastic composites are increasingly being used in the field of sporting goods, automotive, personal protection and aerospace applications, thanks to the excellent performance/weight ratio and quick processing capabilities.
In order to fulfil the increased Tepex material demands, Bond-Laminates has built a new plant next to its previous location in Brilon, Germany. The existing production line with a capacity of 400 tons/a is running in a 3 shift operation. Currently, a second line with a capacity of 800 tons/a is being commissioned. In addition to this important capacity increase, Bond-Laminates has installed a water jet cutting line in order to trim the fully consolidated laminates to customized contours on demand.
