Chomarat (Le Cheylard, France) introduced TPREG at JEC Europe 2013, a continuous thermoplastic-impregnated reinforcement for mass production of thermoplastic composites. The company offers the material in various forms, including woven fabric, multiaxial fabric, tape or scrim, in a variety of fiber and matrix combinations and impregnation levels, depending on customer needs. The company says the molded part performance, as measured by flexural modulus and tensile strength, can equal that of a part made with thermoset resin, with the additional advantages of high impact resistance, no styrene, high production speed, recyclability and easier storage and usability compared to traditional thermoset prepregs.
