Toray Cetex® TC1225 is a high-end thermoplastic composite material, utilizing a semi-crystalline engineered low-melt 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 of up to 60°C (140°F). Toray Cetex® TC1225 doesn’t only yield a high-quality product used in ATL/AFP processes, it also 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. Product benefits/features Superior processability as a result of low-melt viscosity and relatively low processing temperature Form freedom—suited for overmolding with neat or short fiber reinforced PEEK Relatively low processing temperature enables shorter cycle times and less energy consumption Excellent mechanical performance, also at elevated temperatures
