Tier 1 partners

Our Tier 1 partners have access to all the research generated in the field of thermoplastic composites, and Tier 1 partners enjoy full voting rights.
Catch the overview of Tier 1 partners.

We believe that successful innovation is driven by a good fundamental understanding. Our understanding of material behavior in melt and the resulting unique characterization tests that the we have created, for example, are well appreciated by numerous aerospace companies, whom we help to produce defect-free thermoplastic composite parts.

Is your company willing to get involved with thermoplastic composites? Then get on board, fill in our contact form and we will make sure we will get in touch very quickly. We are looking forward to your request!

Vaupell | sbAERO

Robert Shick, Business Director – Composites

“Vaupell has a division that specializes in composite parts production, primarily for aerospace applications. We joined the TPRC to help us expand in the market of thermoplastic composites, and to assist with these hybrid molded prototype demonstrations and basic process/property relationships that are necessary to move these novel approaches forward into innovative new products with improved performance. We appreciate the TPRC’s open, collaborative approach, and have been very impressed with their high quality R&D programs.”

Howmet Aerospace

Massimo Cella, Howmet Aerospace

“Through the TPRC activities we are increasing our application knowledge. We better understand the interactions between fasteners and thermoplastic materials. Knowledge allows product enhancements and evolution to offer better solutions to our customers.”

Solvay

Jim Pratte, Senior Research Fellow – Solvay Composite Materials Global Business Unit

“Solvay’s research and innovation experts will work hand in hand with the TPRC on selected projects where we see joint benefits. Solvay and the TPRC are both committed to increasing the adoption of TPC by the aerospace and automotive industries and our membership will strengthen our ability to contribute to industry developments.”

Toray Advanced Composites

Frank Meurs, Managing Director - EMEA, Toray Advanced Composites

“The commercial adoption of thermoplastic composites requires the involvement and partnership of the complete supply chain. Over the past 10 years the TPRC has played a pivotal role in establishing a state-of-the-art manufacturing capability where Toray Advanced Composites can introduce new material concepts, and test the boundaries of process capability. We are very grateful to our TPRC partners and look forward to the future.”

Daher

Dominique Bailly, Head of Research & Technology (R&T) - Daher

"We are fully ready to contribute to the thermoplastic composites value chain that TPRC has brought together, and to benefit from the knowledge of other consortium members. In particular, we appreciate the added value of working with PhD students that gives us access to academic studies and analyses on material behavior during the industrial processes."
