Continuous Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic UD Tape

The days of CFRT are here

 
Dry prepregs of continuous fibers impregnated with thermoplastic polymer used to be only applied in high-end application in aerospace and defence. Nowadays, application of CFRT UD tapes grows significantly in automotive, industrial, transport and other industries. New materials are developed and produced to match market demand.
