Thermoplastic prepregs offer an alternative to thermoset prepregs that is relatively easy to handle, quick to process, easy to recycle, and comes with a range of useful properties.
Cygnet Texkimp’s thermoplastic prepreg technology is designed to manufacture thermoplastic tapes in large volumes for markets such as automotive and construction. The Direct Melt Impregnation Thermoplastic Line is believed to be the world’s first commercially available thermoplastic manufacturing line capable of using standard polymers, from polypropylene to PEEK, to create high-grade thermoplastic prepregs on an industrial scale.
By using standard polymer in pellet form, this technology significantly simplifies and shortens the process of prepreg manufacture without compromising the quality and performance of the end product.
The Direct Melt Impregnation Thermoplastic Line is a compact machine that can easily be accommodated within a relatively small manufacturing facility and doesn’t require any specialist knowledge to operate.
