What project partners say about the TPRC
“TPRC’s expertise on characterizing mechanical properties of CFRTP’s at processing temperatures is quite unique. It helped us a lot in further developing our drape simulation.”
C. Koch, Research & Development Automotive, REHAU AG + Co.
“The work we have done with TPRC has shown to accelerate the progress in our own research projects. It’s not about just performing tests, it’s also about true understanding of material and process behavior, which is still rare to find in the world of thermoplastic composites.”
Warden Schijve – Sabic
“We have been very impressed with the quality of composites research at TPRC. The team at TPRC has demonstrated a great mix of practical process knowledge and a robust approach to modelling techniques and model development. The TPRC has also been very successful in bringing together into a collaborative project a broad range of companies which have each contributed from their own domain either equipment, materials expertise, process knowledge, modelling knowledge and software modelling. None of the partner company would have been able to achieve as much if they had been working alone – What has been achieved in collaboration is greater than the sum of the individual parts.”
