Technology for high-performance thermoplastic prepregs

News International-French

17 Feb 2016

JEC World 2016 - Mikrosam has developed an equipment for the continuous production of thermoplastic fabric prepreg, UD prepreg and towpreg in combination with carbon, glass and aramid reinforcements.

The machine is characterized by high-quality prepreg production, high production speed, continuous control and regulation of the reinforcement tension during the production process, high control of the amount of applied thermoplastic powder and correct coupling of the thermoplastic powder in the melt process with precise regulation of the temperature control at all stages during the production process.

The formation of a thermoplastic layer and fine calendaring are performed with high pressure in order to achieve better impregnation of thermoplastics against the reinforcement. Thermoplastic materials such as PEEK, PEKK, PPS, PES, PEK, PES, PSU and PA6 are used in this process. Besides the use of thermoplastics in the form of powder, Mikrosam is currently developing an extruder-type thermoplastic prepreg machine.
