Evopreg® thermoplastic tapes provide outstanding mechanical performance, rapid & clean manufacturing processes, low waste and the potential for easier recyclability at end-of-life.
Much like traditional thermosets, Evopreg® thermoplastic tapes can be processed in several different ways. However, unlike thermosets, the processed parts can also be post-formed to create more complex shapes.
Additionally, our thermoplastic tapes can be stored almost indefinitely, compared to the limited shelf-life of pre-impregnated thermoset tapes.
Evopreg® thermoplastic tapes are manufactured using our proprietary hot-melt process, developed by our in-house team of engineers. They are designed for a range of applications and processing methods.
Evopreg® thermoplastic tapes exhibit a high strength-to-weight ratio and is well suited to a variety of applications where strength and toughness are required.
Evopreg® PA is a range of thermoplastic tapes manufactured from polyamide-6 (PA6) polymer with unidirectional fibres and is suitable for automated tape laying, winding and compression moulding into high-performance, lightweight components.
Evopreg® PP is a range of thermoplastic tapes manufactured from polypropylene polymer with unidirectional fibres and is suitable for automated tape laying, winding and compression moulding into high-performance, lightweight components.
Whether it’s toll manufacturing, or working with our Research & Technology team to create something bespoke, our aim is to be a responsive and supportive partner to help you best exploit the benefits of composites.
