Product description

TenCate Cetex® MC1200 PEEK is a thermoplastic bulk molding compound (BMC) based upon TC1200 UD tape. TenCate Cetex® MC1200 is offered on high strength fibers lengths of up to 25.4 mm (1 inch), intermediate modulus fibers and alternative lengths may also be available.

Thermoplastic BMCs allow part fabrication with short cycle times. This product allows complex shapes to be made with varying wall thickness, integrated ribs and reinforcing structures. Many composite compression molded parts are used to replace metal parts for weight savings or they replace plastic injection molded parts where higher strengths or stiffness are required.

“TenCate Cetex MC1200-4A, PEEK, 1 inch” represents high strength AS-4 fiber chopped to 25.4mm (one inch) in length.
