TenCate Advanced Composites (Morgan Hill, CA, US) is featuring its Cetex family of thermoplastic unidirectional tapes, molding compounds and laminates for use in aerospace, defense and industrial applications such as automotive, consumer footwear, medical, electronics and oil and gas. Recent innovations include TenCate’s line of out-of-autoclave (OOA) prepregs, including TC275-1 with QISO quasi-isotropic triaxial fabrics. This combination of materials reportedly provides higher strengths compared to traditional woven fabrics and offers layup efficiencies. This product form is the subject of a joint SAMPE paper with A&P Technology, titled, “A Comparative Evaluation of Quasi- Isotropic Laminates Composed of Either Braided Triaxial Fabric or Woven Fabric, Including Impact and Laminate Performance,” by Mike Braley and Brandon Strohminger of A&P Technology, and Barry Meyers of TenCate Advanced Composites. In composite tooling, recently launched products include TenCate’s AmberTool HXR product line, which features a multi-axial ply format that reduces lay up time while maintaining excellent handling.
