Barrday Inc. (Millbury, Mass.) has recently extended its thermoplastic laminate technology to unidirectional thermoplastic tapes, targeting structural applications in the commercial aerospace, military/defense and industrial markets. These products use carbon fiber and high-performance glass fiber reinforcements in polyetheretherketone (PEEK), polyetherketoneketone (PEKK), polyetherimide (PEI), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), and polyamide (nylon) matrices. These tapes are available in a range of fiber areal weights and resin contents. Initial tape widths will run from 160 mm to 305 mm (6.25 inches to 12.0 inches). However, the equipment has been sized to produce prepregs at widths of up to 610 mm/24 inches.
