Tier 1 partners

The TPRC 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.

The TPRC believes 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 TPRC has 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."

Turkish Aerospace Industries

Bekir Ünlüoğlu, Structural Engineering Manager Aerostructure, Turkish Aerospace Industries

"If you are working with thermoplastics, the TPRC is the right partner for you to create a successful thermoplastic product. Their expertise guide YOU to develop your product.
Responsive layout and experienced staff."

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."

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.”



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.”

Aniform

Sebastiaan Haanappel, Managing Director – Aniform Engineering

“Our collaboration with TPRC researchers leads to matured, recognized, and standardized material characterization methods for forming simulations, which are eventually of great benefit to all our clients.”
