Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRT) materials are based on continuous fiber and a thermoplastic resin as reinforced material and matrix respectively. Through special processes, it can manufacture composite material with high strength, high rigidity, and high toughness. Nowadays, with the improving strength of the continuous fiber, CFRT material has more and more excellent mechanical properties for a wide range of use in various fields like truck making, rail car manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, pipe industry, and military. Here let’s see some of its applications.
Trucking and Trailer
Our CFRT (continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite) offers truck and trailer manufacturers the possibility to reduce weight while maintaining exceptional strength, stiffness, and impact resistance. The transportation lines and aerodynamic components are engineered to meet the customer’s specifications. Design flexibility is readily achieved by tailoring combinations of varying fiber content as well as fiber orientation.
Within the industry, piping is usually a system of pipes used to convey fluids (liquids and gases) from one location to another. The engineering discipline of piping design studies the efficient transport of fluid.
To some extent, modern piping often refers to a piping design that is usually performed by Auto CAD.
For the pipe industry, we provide strong, durable, and environmentally friendly materials. Our continuous fiber-reinforced composites can also be used to retrofit old, outdated, and environmentally dangerous pipes. TOPOLO’s composite material can be added to standard polypropylene pipes. By using a modified filament winding process, it will be extra reinforced.
Can you imagine how the CFRT composite contributes to military works? Yes, of course. The continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic material manufactured by TOPOLO represents a breakthrough in energy management engineering for ballistic applications. Thermo-ballistic tapes can be made into laminated sheets and panels. These continuous fiber-reinforced composite materials can be molded to create end-user applications including ballistic-tolerant panels to protect troops, vehicles, equipment, and buildings.
Features of Continuous Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Composites Materials:
Exceptional energy management properties – ballistic, blast, and high strain-to-failure
Ability to supply materials and laminates capable of withstanding specific threats
Taking cost, weight, performance, and parameters into consideration
