Recycled thermoplastic composite rotorcraft access panel takes flight
Designed as part of the TPC-Cycle program, the flight-tested panel demonstrates a lighter, cost-effective, sustainable thermoplastic composite application.
The state of recycled carbon fiber
As the need for carbon fiber rises, can recycling fill the gap?
Thermoplastic composites: Poised to step forward
The evolving role of thermoplastic materials and processes and their future in next-generation commercial aircraft.
Recycled thermoplastic composites for production
Multi-year R&D at ThermoPlastic composites Applications Center (TPAC), TenCate and Clean Sky 2 demonstrate economic advantage of serial production using recycled materials.
TPAC and TPRC develop thermoplastic composites recycling process
Known as TPC-Cycle, the project targets production scrap by developing a recycling route for high-end and high volume markets.
