The intent to “Think ThermoPlastic” is an integrated concept to position the Toho Tenax Group as a responsible partner to the industry. The development of carbon fibre-based lightweight, high-performance composites mainly targets the weight reduction of aircraft.

Composites are the material of choice for today’s aircraft structures due to their excellent weight-specific performance. Recent dry-fibre technology developments open the door for infusion-based composites to become a serious competitor for the widely adopted prepreg-based structures, which currently dominate aerospace structural applications.
