Product description

TenCate Cetex® TC925 FST is a value oriented engineered thermoplastic composite, utilizing polycarbonate (PC) resin for good surface qualities, impact toughness and good fire resistance.

TenCate Cetex® is typically supplied in 3.6m x 1.2m (12ft x 4ft) pre-consolidated laminates (RTL) of varying ply thicknesses, specifically adhering to customer designated fiber selection, orientation and ply count.

The use of TenCate Cetex® as a reinforced thermoplastic laminate (RTL) composite significantly reduces the production cycle-time by eliminating the handling and assembly of traditional wet-lay materials, along with the potential for error. In addition, the thermoplastic forming time is calculated in minutes and seconds, not hours. Heating, forming and cooling can take less than 5 minutes for complex 3D geometry, and sandwich panels can now be realized in 15 minutes without the inconvenience of core read-through. Further optimization can be gained in secondary processing, due to the thermoplastic resin. These operations can include welding, folding, painting and printing.
