Product description

TenCate Cetex® MC1200 is a thermoplastic bulk molding compound based upon Cetex TC1200 PEEK thermoplastic unitape. TenCate Cetex® MC1200 is offered on standard modulus fibers lengths of up to 1 inch. (Intermediate modulus fibers and alternative lengths may also be available). Thermoplastic bulk molding compound allows part fabrication with short cycle times. This product allows complex shapes to be made with varying wall thickness, integrated ribs and reinforcing structure. Many composite compression molded parts are used to replace metal parts for weight savings or they replace plastic injection molded parts where higher strengths or stiffness are required. “TenCate Cetex MC1200-4A, PEEK, 1 inch” represents standard modulus AS-4 fiber chopped to one inch (25.4mm) in length.
