The company has launched several new high-grade products and showcased a range of customer applications that use its advanced composites.

Items displayed at the TenCate stand include a full size Thales GD LiveTV triband radome, an Airbus Defense and Space next generation solar panel for future ESA missions using the latest space prepreg technology, and an Airbus A380 engine pylon cover manufactured by Daher Socata using TenCate Cetex thermoplastic composites. The TenCate stand also features a showcase of thermoset and thermoplastic automotive pieces including the Kringlan thermoplastic hybrid rim for passenger cars.

Tencate has also launched:

  • TenCate Cetex TC1320 PEKK  thermoplastic composite for commercial aircraft applications ranging from structural components to interiors. The material features flame retardancy, low moisture uptake, resistance to solvents and toughness for impact resistance.
  • TenCate Cetex TC912 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 TC275-1 epoxy out of autoclave/vacuum processible structural prepregs. It is currently being used in general aviation and launch structure as a result of its ideal set of mechanical and handling properties.
  • TenCate E760 epoxy resin system with high temperature performance designed for use in mechanically demanding structural applications exposed to elevated temperatures, such as Formula 1 and high performance automotive.
