Thermoplastic composites: Poised to step forward
The evolving role of thermoplastic materials and processes and their future in next-generation commercial aircraft.

Thermoplastic composite production waste is recycled into production parts

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.

thermoplastic composite recycling

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.


Cato Composite Innovations, AMAC form strategic Partnership
Germany-based AMAC, led by Michael Effing, will help market the high-volume, thermoplastics-based composites manufacturing capabilities of Netherlands-based Cato Composite Innovation.

Cato Composites merges Norway and Netherlands operations
The two independent companies, both active in thermoplastic composite component development and manufacturing, will unite at the Cato Composite Innovations BV site in Doesburg, The Netherlands.
