North Thin Ply Technology Announces Lloyd’s Register Approval for Marine Focussed ThinPreg 736LT

North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT) has announced the recent approval of its ThinPreg 736LT prepreg system by Lloyd’s Register.

As a sister company to the North Technology Group, and as inventors of the 3Di technology for North Sails’ grand prix yacht racing sails, NTPT ays its composite technology is renowned within the marine market and this latest certification confirms its continued commitment to development in this sector.

According to NTPT, the 736LT prepreg system is a versatile all-round system offering an exceptional balance of material properties and usability.

NTPT explains that its 736LT system is formulated to offer long out life (up to 8 weeks at 18-22°C) and excellent mechanical performance, and is well suited to the production of large structures and can be cured at temperatures as low as 80°C.

NTPT says its ThinPreg 736LT UD prepregs can be supplied in a full range of weights (30gsm upwards) and in plotted multiaxial formats such as a 400g +/-45° available in widths up to 4m.   

Recognising the need to provide boat builders with a full package of composite materials, NTPT explains that it also offers a compatible set of 736LT products such as prepreg peel ply, woven fabrics and adhesive films for core bonding.

Following the official factory opening in June of this year, NTPT says that significant new production capacity at its facility in Zory, Poland, ensures that it is perfectly positioned to supply even the largest of new projects at competitive lead times.
