Tenax® Part via Preform is a new carbon fiber composite concept, combining one-step net-shape preforming with HP RTM injection.
Tenax® Part via Preform (PvP) is a highly efficient production technology for industrial volume CFRP parts, which is very cost competitive and therefore particularly suitable for automotive requirements. The process works by automated deposition of carbon fiber directly into near net-shape preforms. This reduces carbon fiber waste and intermediate processing to a minimum. High productivity random and aligned carbon fiber preforms can be combined for optimized cost and performance characteristics. The PvP parts are produced using high pressure (HP) and standard RTM Systems, together with modern Epoxy and Polyurethane thermosetting resins.
Part via Preform features:
Unique Net-shape Preforming utilizing new functional Tenax® carbon fibers
State-of-the-Art Resin Injection
Visual Surface Capabilities
Cost Reduction for Mass Production
