Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites

Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites

RTC is ideal for interior panels as well as semi-structural parts. Typical application areas are in transportation, marine and building sectors.

 

Benefits of RTC panels are:

  • Fully finished parts in one shot
  • Surface materials (eg vinyl coated felt, artificial leather, needled polyester felt) integrated in the final panel during manufacturing process
  • Easy processability
  • Economical short series production
  • Simple and economical tools (eg wooden molds)
  • Fast cycle time
  • Weight reduction
  • Good vibration damping
  • Good sound and heat insulation
  • Recyclable - reduce waste to landfill
  • Expandable under heat=>"sandwich effect for stiffness"
  • Freedom of design
  • Potential to use natural, carbon and basalt fibers instead of glass fibres
