Thermoplastic composites technology: A view from Europe
For this Dutch consortium, bringing the manufacturability of thermoplastic materials to maturity is the goal in concert with OEMs, materials and equipment supplier members.

Thermoplastic composites: European consortia, galore!
In addition to the Thermoplastic Composites Research Center (TPRC, Enschede, The Netherlands) — see our article focused on TPRC, titled "Thermoplastic composites technology: A view from Europe" under "Editor's Picks, at top right — there are many other European consortia, comprising private industry, university and government entities, which share the goals of exploring composites materials and methods for manufacturing them, including those with thermoplastic matrices. Here's a sampling.

TAPAS 2: Next steps in thermoplastic aerostructures
The Netherland's-based Thermoplastic Affordable Primary Aircraft Structure (TAPAS) consortium's TAPAS 2 team builds on the successes of TAPAS 1, taking the next steps in aircraft thermoplastic composites architecture.
