North Thin Ply Technology (NTPT, Penthalaz-Cossonay, Switzerland) is featuring in its booth its new 15-gsm UD Prepreg Tapes. NTPT notes that while the standard for light prepreg is around 100 gsm, NTPT made the world’s lightest prepreg even thinner. The 15-gsm UD tape can be used to create lightweight sandwich panels for ultralight aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), aerospace applications and rigid wings for racing yachts. When weight saving and composite quality are key, it allows for the creation of symmetric laminates with multiple fiber orientations. NTPT representatives also will be available to discuss automation solutions for high-performance composite fabrication.
