Chomarat Group, France, has introduced TPreg, a range of continuous thermoplastic pre-impregnated reinforcements with automotive and sports/leisure applications.

Acording to the company, TPreg offers advantages including speed of conversion processes, low volatile emissions, thermoformability and recyclability. The material is conformable while maintaining perfect fiber orientation; and can be made in a range of widths using various materials including carbon or glass fiber, among others. Other advantages include low weight, reduced production costs and large series production possibilities.

"With various impregnation levels in development, the range is suited to various production processes and opens up new technico-economic prospects for the market," said P. Sanial, R&D manager, Chomarat.
