Toray Cetex® TC1225 is a a high-end thermoplastic composite material, utilizing a semi-crystalline engineered PAEK resin for excellent mechanical performance. The distinctive value of Toray Cetex® TC1225 over other composites with a PAEK family matrix is its superior processability due to a low melt viscosity and reduction in processing temperature. Toray Cetex® TC1225 doesn’t only yield a high-quality product used in ATL/AFP processes, it speeds up cycle times enabling cost-efficient production in all available formats.
Additionally, Toray Cetex® TC1225 is an ideal composite to be overmolded with neat or short fiber reinforced PEEK resin, creating a very strong bond. Overmolding, integrating continuous fiber reinforced composites in an injection molding
process, combines the strength of high-end composites with the design freedom and complexity of injection molding parts.
Toray Cetex® TC1225 is available as a UD tape, a fabric prepreg, and as reinforced thermoplastic laminates (RTLs)
of varying thicknesses. RTLs can be equipped with lightning strike protection, and carbon reinforced RTLs can be supplied with a thin glass top layer to protect a partly metallic assembly against galvanic corrosion. Glass scrim is also applicable in structures made from UD tape.
