Thermoplastic composites research center

Advancing thermoplastic composite technology

The ThermoPlastic composites Research Center (TPRC) is a consortium of industrial and academic members active in the thermoplastic composites industry. We believe in thermoplastic composites as the material for lightweight manufacturing in large volumes. Our primary aim is to enable a more widespread use of thermoplastic composites by eliminating technological barriers.

For this purpose, the consortium as a whole defines and executes a research roadmap aimed at generating the fundamental knowledge required to optimize existing and new manufacturing processes in terms of quality and productivity. The developed knowledge is put to use through process design tools which allow design for manufacturing for thermoplastic composites, taking into account the material and processing capabilities and limitations.
