Thermoplastic composites are light, strong, chemically stable, sustainable, and recyclable. Cygnet Texkimp’s technology is designed to make them viable in mainstream markets including high-volume automotive and construction, where adoption has so far been low. The company – whose thermoset technology is already well-established – aims to remove barriers to the adoption of thermoplastic composites and enable manufacturers to create strong, lightweight, durable and recyclable car parts and building materials quickly and reliably.

This technology transforms the way thermoplastic composites are manufactured in a way that is reliable, cost-efficient, user-friendly, cleaner and more environmentally friendly compared with conventional approaches. It is original and innovative because it uses standard polymers in pellet form as the raw material. Standard pellets are considerably more convenient, less expensive, safer and easier to source than the finely-powdered polymers or solvent-based slurries commonly used in current manufacturing practices.

The machine is a complete solution with a small footprint that can easily be accommodated within a relatively small manufacturing facility and does not require any particular specialist knowledge to operate.
