Northern Composites Becomes TenCate’s Eastern US Representation for Tooling Prepregs

14 May 2013

Northern Composites will serve as the Eastern US representative for TenCate on a new line of 3M Tooling Prepregs.

TenCate and 3M have joined forces to market and support 3M’s line of tooling prepregs featuring 3M’s patented matrix resin technology. 3M say this product utilises nanosilicas to create a more durable, robust and dimensionally accurate tool for the fabrication of composite parts.

Northern Composites will have responsibility for supporting customers in the Eastern half of the United States of America. Joe Johnson, Tooling Product Manager at TenCate Advanced Composites comments, “TenCate is very pleased to be working with Northern Composites. They have hands on experience building composite tools with customers, and offer a complete line of materials from adhesives to mould releases to consumables. Northern Composites has a long and successful track record of offering world class service and technical support”.

Dick Hewett, Sales Manager of Northern Composites, states, “This opportunity combines the strengths of TenCate Advanced Composites and Northern Composites from a customer support perspective while offering leading edge new technology from 3M for the growing composite tooling market”.
