JEC Europe 2015 - Concordia adds polyetherimide (PEI) and Kynar (PVDF) polymers to its portfolio of commingled yarns for producing thermoplastic composites.

Commingling is a process for producing highly flexible thermoplastic prepregs. Concordia intimately blends unsized continuous-filament carbon fibre with unsized continuous-filament thermoplastic fibres to produce a yarn that can be woven or braided into fabrics.

These fabrics are then moulded into complex shapes with the addition of heat and pressure. Other matrix polymers offered by the company include PEEK, PPS, PA6, PA12, polyester, and polypropylene. All of these thermoplastics can be commingled with a broad range of carbon and glass fibres.
