  • TenCate Cetex® TC912, a PA6 thermoplastic for a range of structural and semi-structural high-volume automotive applications, offering improved mechanical properties and tailored fabric architecture available in both woven and UD reinforcements.
  • TenCate E760, a high-temperature thermoset prepreg for Formula 1 and high-performance automotive applications, which joins TenCate’s existing range of Formula 1 and high-performance automotive thermoset prepregs including E745, E750 and TC420.

At the Morgan Hill (North America) plant, TenCate announces internal slitting capability for both thermoset and thermoplastic unitapes. The company’s precision slitting equipment features eighteen station traverse winders, with slit widths of 0.3175 to 0.095 cm. In Europe, the Langley Mill (UK) site is set to become a centre of excellence for thermoset chemistry systems, expanding the European capability to include thermoset composite materials for aerospace and space applications and capacity for fabric and UD-based products to serve existing industrial markets.
