The new, all-composite turboprop Kestrel K-350 will use TenCate’s TC275-1 epoxy prepreg system, which has improved hot/wet strength retention and can cure at either 275°F or 350°F. The prepreg can be processed with a free-standing post cure for higher temperature performance.

The Kestrel K-350 represents an all-composite single-engine, turboprop aircraft that can carry up to eight people at high speed over long distances.

"TenCate is pleased to be the composite supplier to Kestrel Aircraft,” said Joe Morris, president of TenCate Advanced Composites North America. “This long term supply agreement represents the continuation of a long term successful relationship we have had with the Kestrel management team.”
