TenCate will also be discussing their UK centre of excellence for thermoset chemistry systems as a result of the Langley Mill (Nottingham, UK) plant expansion. This increase in both capabilities and capacity will serve the EMEA region with specialist advanced composite materials for existing markets, including aerospace and high performance motorsport, whilst building on a strong heritage of TenCate AmberTool® tooling prepregs.
