Technical textile manufacturer specialized in composites. "TPFL prepregs” for high performance thermoplastic composites.
The Schappe know-how is based on the use of long fibres to obtain yarns which are more bulky and of higher tenacity. Stretch breaking, the first step of the process, consists of transforming the continuous filaments into a top of long fibres. This technique, developed by the company utilizing their own design of machines, removes the weak points of the fibres and improves their characteristics by increasing their tenacity and spinability.
