Tencate Advanced Composites USA has installed a new thermoplastic unitape prepreg line in Morgan Hill CA to meet the growing demand for aerospace thermoplastic composites.

This investment builds upon TenCate’s 2007 acquisition of Phoenixx TPC, a leading manufacturer of thermoplastic unitapes.

Scott Unger, Group President of TenCate Advanced Composites USA reports that “thermoplastic applications continue to grow within the aerospace market. Thermoplastic composites offer many of the properties desired for the next generation of aerospace composites including: fast processing cycles, excellent toughness, fire retardant properties, weldability, low moisture absorption, re-process ability and room temperature storage. Thermoplastic uni-tapes in particular allow customers to gain the benefits of automation from automated tape laying and in-situ out of autoclave consolidation processes for added productivity savings”.

The TenCate Cetex Thermo-Lite brand of thermoplastic uni-tapes are offered with PEEK, PEKK, PPS and PEI resins in up to twelve inch widths with carbon, glass or aramid fibres.

Joe Morris, Vice President and COO states that “this investment represents TenCate’s continued commitment and investment in thermoplastic composites.”
