AtenPly can be made using standard continuous fibres, such as carbon, glass or aramid, with a variety of thermoplastic matrices, including polypropylene, polyethylene, PET, polyamides, PEEK and PPS as well as thermoplastic elastomers and biodegradable plastics such as polycaprolactone. The materials can incorporate additives for performance enhancement or improved aesthetics, and can be made in a range of widths, colours, and fibre volume fractions
