Product description

TenCate Cetex® TC912 is an engineered thermoplastic composite, utilizing PA6 resin for its high strength and excellent solvent resistance. TenCate Cetex® TC912 is typically supplied in 3.66m x 1.22m (12ft x 4ft) pre-consolidated laminates (RTL) of varying ply thicknesses, specifically adhering to customer designated fibre selection, orientation and ply count. Laminates available as standard are high strength carbon or E-glass as a 50/50 directional fabric reinforcement and high strength carbon as a 80/20 directional fabric reinforcement. TenCate Cetex® TC912 is specifically developed for high volume processes, and is especially suitable as a preform insert for compression and overmoulding to increase part performance. Further optimisation can be gained in secondary processing, due to the thermoplastic resin. These operations can include welding, forming, folding, adhesive bonding and painting.
