Delivering the potential of thermoplastic composites
Why has the adoption of TPCs been slower than expected, and who is best placed to accelerate it?

Consolidating thermoplastic composite aerostructures in place, Part 2
Thermoplastic composite structures could eliminate the autoclave and fasteners, but will a one- or two-step process prevail?

thermoplastic tape

I want to say two words to you: “Thermoplastic tapes”
Thermoplastic tapes are not new to composites, but they soon will join the primary aerostructures material palette and could be their future.

Consolidating thermoplastic composite aerostructures in place, Part 1
After more than 30 years of development, in-situ consolidation is nearing its promise to eliminate fasteners and the autoclave, and enable an integrated, multifunctional airframe.
