TenCate at the Hannover Messe

At the trade fair, TenCate shows the chassis of the Alfa Romeo 4C, manufactured by Adler in Italy using thermoset composite from TenCate.  For years TenCate has a strong presence in the aerospace industry with its thermoplastic composites. TenCate thermoset composites are widely used in the space industry. The shift to the automobile industry opens up a new market. TenCate intends to build a bridge from the small (racing) car producers to the large automobile manufacturers with countless – thermoset or thermoplastic – composite parts or materials for the large-scale manufacturing of cars.
