THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITE TAPES & LAMINATES

Polystrand™ Continuous Fiber Tapes & Laminates

Strength & Versatility

High strength, unidirectional fibers and engineered thermoplastic resins combine to create Polystrand™ continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) tapes and laminates that can help reduce weight while maintaining exceptional strength and impact resistance in a variety of applications.
Available in rolls of unidirectional tape, as well as X-Ply™ 0˚/90˚ and other multi-ply laminates, Polystrand materials can be post-formed and co-molded with mixed materials in thermoforming and injection molding processes to achieve part designs and cycle times that meet the most demanding performance targets. And because they are thermoplastic, these CFRTP materials are more easily recycled compared to thermoset materials.

The property table below represents a sample of tape material properties. Please see the resource tab for additional product information.
