Prepreg composite material

TECATEC IP composites

Thermoplastic prepreg materials are fully impregnated and fully consolidated one-layer sheets made from carbon or glass fibre fabrics and a broad variety of thermoplastic materials as matrix materials. Examples for matrices range from engineering polymers such as polycarbonate and polyamides to high-performance plastics like PEI, PEEK and PEKK. Ensinger offers a portfolio of standard materials in stock as well as the possibility to develop tailor-made prepreg materials.

Thanks to Ensinger’s in-house compound manufacturing, we can additionally offer special blends and compounds for our prepreg composites. Custom matrix and fibre combinations, fibre architectures or matrix materials can be offered upon request.

Prepreg composite materials are the ideal choice to manufacture parts that require highest stiffness-to-weight and strength-to weight ratio. Continuous fibre reinforcements, such as carbon fibre, offer high stiffness and strength while keeping the weight extremely low. The thermoplastic matrix offers many advantages over common thermoset (epoxy) matrices, amongst them high impact resistance, high chemical resistance, high temperature resistance, a wider selection of materials tailor-made to your application, and more.

Additionally, our prepreg materials can be used for manufacturing organosheets, thermoplastic composite parts, stock shapes or thermoformed parts. We supply to all industries, be it industrial, sports equipment, automotive or oil & gas. Contact us for special requirements such as aerospace or medical applications.
