Recently in the field of new material processing, continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites are getting more concerned as their outperformance in aesthetics, lightweight, and flexibility.
The innovative material is set to tap into the growing demand worldwide for strong and light materials that contribute to resource conservation and energy efficiency. From mobility and electronics industries to consumer goods and medical products, OEMs and part suppliers can benefit from the high-performance capabilities of advanced composites while enjoying cost-effective and lightweight solutions.
Along with its aesthetical and flexible design, the lightweight and low thickness of CFRT material show another breakthrough of the boundaries of traditional metal and plastic materials. It is smart for the world’s largest appliance manufacturer.
As to the production, CFRT material can reportedly be thermoformed with existing thermoforming tools at high yield rates and low cycle times for millions of parts per year. Other production technologies such as hybrid injection molding, automated UD tape laying, and automated fiber placement (AFP) can be easily integrated.
As continuous fiber-reinforced composites, the new products can also be recycled at the end of their useful life, making them “a perfect example of what scalable and sustainable composite solutions look like in giving industries the material tools to push boundaries”.
By our newly developed technology of continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic, TOPOLO is attracting interests in diverse market segments including the electrical industry, automotive, medical, athletic shoes, and consumer goods. We also produce T-UD series uni-directional reinforced tapes and T-PC series thermoplastic composite sheets at our production site in Shanghai. We believe the new material can truly bring value to next-generation products across industries by delivering a combination of lightweight construction, specific strengths, and finishes at a scale unreachable for today’s existing materials.
