Through the introduction of this enhanced product range, NTPT demonstrates that the company is ready to serve the marine market in a professional and dedicated way.

ThinPreg 80EP, one of the key products of NTPT, is a unidirectional tape made of carbon fibres impregnated with thermoset epoxy resin system 736 with a curing temperature of 80°C. The improved range includes an updated 736 matrix with modified tack and flow behaviour, which is adapted to manufacture thicker ply material (150gsm to 300gsm). It is available in a wide range of fibres including standard, intermediate and high modulus UD reinforcement fibres. NTPT is also able to offer the marine market woven and multiaxial prepreg products based on the same system, along with a high toughness adhesive film. A nano particle property enhanced version of the 736 system has also been developed. The range is supplemented with a prepreg peel ply product, allowing NTPT to offer a comprehensive range of boat building prepreg products which will complement its Thin Ply prepregs that have been used successfully for many years in the marine industry.

"Extending our product range will definitely be an advantage for the marine market, because NTPT is able to propose the right products according to the market’s needs. Our customer friendly prices, short lead times, and reliable, fast shipping enables users to have the material quickly at their disposal." states NTPT’s CEO James Austin.
