Tenax® TPUD is a thermoplastic unidirectional prepreg that combines two high-performance materials: carbon fiber with a tailored sizing for thermoplastic applications and a high-temperature polymer.
Tenax® TPUD is a thermoplastic unidirectional prepreg that combines two high-performance materials: carbon fiber with a tailored sizing for thermoplastic applications and a high-temperature polymer (i.e. PEEK). The TPUD is available in a wide range of widths (6.35 mm to 609,6 mm). Tenax® TPUD is offered in different fiber grades such as HTS and IMS.
The material can be laid per hand or automatically (automated tape laying, automated fiber placement) without the need for de-bulking like in thermoset prepreg, for example. It can then be consolidated in a press (static or semi-continuous) or in an oven under vacuum. Winding processing can also be applied to manufacture tubular parts in only one step.
