Demands for materials in the manufacturing industry are high. Regardless of the industry, they should be sturdy and lightweight, as well as cost-efficient. Prepregs are available with thermosetting and thermoplastic coatings. Composite materials made of continuous fibers coated with thermoplastic matrix materials offer numerous advantages.
Advantages of thermoplastic prepregs over thermosetting ones:
COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGES WITH OUR ENDLESS FIBER REINFORCED COMPOSITE DELICOMP®
Our thermoplastic prepreg DeliComp® optimizes your production processes sustainably, no matter where our composite is used: automotive, lightweight components, ballistic applications, construction sector, or other industries. Thanks to various textile substrate materials with a specially developed matrix, this composite semi-finished product offers a wide range of applications. It can be used as an insert in injection molding or for laminating other materials, allowing the use of nearly all available yarns and rovings on the market.
In our manufacturing process, we use high-strength yarns like glass rovings, aramid yarns, or basalt filaments, which are fully impregnated in the desired matrix, such as polypropylene, after the weaving process. Thanks to the small size of the dispersed plastic particles, they can be gently introduced into the textile during our special infusion process at low pressure. The advantage is that the textile fiber orientation remains very well-preserved, and all individual fibers are encapsulated by the matrix. The delicate fabric becomes manageable without shifting, even with open lattice structures.
Our thermoplastic prepreg is available in various roll formats, from coarse, open lattice to dense, closed structures. Upon request, we also manufacture custom-cut geometries and deliver them worldwide on time. DeliComp® comes in various forms, including lattice, unidirectional fabrics, and full-surface fabrics.Download Flyer DeliComp®
Because our thermoplastic prepreg DeliComp® is significantly thinner and more flexible than typical thermoplastic sheets, it can be easily formed into the desired contour with the closing injection molding mold. It can also be laminated. It fills the performance gap between pure injection-molded parts (with glass fiber content) and often oversized components with thermoplastic sheet inserts.
Depending on the geometry and the DeliComp® variant used, the otherwise necessary preheating process can be completely eliminated. The energy from the injected plastic melt is sufficient to melt the DeliComp® matrix and create a composite. This offers significant cost reduction potential for injection molding.
DON'T SETTLE FOR THE "STATE OF THE ART," CHOOSE SOLUTIONS THAT "IMPROVE" THE CENTRAL STAGES OF YOUR VALUE CHAIN SUSTAINABLY
Compared to the state of the art, such as injection molding with glass fiber content, thermoplastic sheets, and thermosetting processes, our thermoplastic prepreg offers numerous advantages:
The fabrics can consist of 100% of one type of yarn, but hybrid fabrics are also possible. Yarn thicknesses are variable and can be adjusted to suit the applications. In addition to the known PP matrix, other matrix systems such as PA can be used based on customer requirements.
