TenCate has signed a further 2-year contract with AZL.

The contract relates to the development of composite solutions for high-volume markets such as the automotive and oil and gas industries.

Key research areas include increasing the productivity of production processes and reducing the manufacturing costs for thermoplastic and thermoset composites.

AZL, the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production, was launched in 2013. Located at RWTH Aachen University, it aims to integrate lightweight design with mass production technologies to enable the cost-effective, high-volume production of lightweight composite (and multi-material) components. 

TenCate was one of AZL's 33 founding partners.
