Toray Cetex® TC1100 is a semi-crystalline polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) thermoplastic composite offering outstanding toughness and excellent chemical and solvent resistance. The material is inherently flame resistant with low smoke emission. It exceeds 35/35 OSU and is qualified at Airbus and Boeing for multiple structural applications.
Toray Cetex® TC1100 is typically supplied in 3.6m x 1.2m (12 ft x 4 ft) pre-consolidated reinforced laminate (RTL) utilising either woven carbon or E-glass to the customer’s designated ply count and orientation. High strength and intermediate modulus carbon UD tape versions are offered in a standard 152 mm (6 inch) width or alternative 305 mm widths (12 inch). Alternative narrower slit widths for ATL processing may be available through secondary slitting.
In addition, lightning strike material can be incorporated on laminates and the laminates can be textured. By utilizing pre-consolidated sheets and avoiding hand lamination, the customer can significantly reduce the cycle time required to produce a finished part. In addition, thermoplastics have the unique capability of allowing parts to be welded, folded, etc., to facilitate lower part count structures.
