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!

Testimonials

What do our members say about us?

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."

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.”

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.”

Collins Aerospace

Teresa Kruckenberg, R&D Director - Collins Aerospace

“TPRC and its consortium members are leaders in the industry for thermoplastic composite materials, processing and process simulation, and design for the manufacture of thermoplastic composite structures.”

Boeing

Alex Rubin, Senior Technical Fellow – Boeing Research & Technology

“Thermoplastic materials and processes enable us to reduce the weight and cost of aircraft components, and to produce composite components at a very high rate of production. This allows designers to explore new applications previously dominated by metallic components. I would describe research conducted at TPRC as World Class. Boeing’s collaboration with TPRC researchers results in a new generation of materials and processes, driving new applications for Boeing products.”



Coriolis Composites

Frank Lancelot, Chief Commercial Officer - Coriolis Composites

"Through their work the TPRC advances the knowledge and understanding of thermoplastic composites for the whole of the composites industry. With more than 10 years of experience in thermoplastic composites, Coriolis Composites is working hand-in-hand with the TPRC since the beginning and is grateful for the common efforts and successes in developing the process capabilities for thermoplastic composites."
