Compared with traditional metals, plastics and thermoset composites, fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites are lighter, tougher, stiffer, and more sustainable and can be produced in high volumes— with the right process.
The Fiberforge process converts pre-impregnated thermoplastic tapes into advanced composite structural parts that meet the demands of almost any high performance application, ranging from aircraft parts to backpack frames.
Thermoplastic advanced composites compared to other materials:
- 60% lighter and 600% stiffer than steel
- 30% lighter than aluminum
- 200% tougher than thermoset composites
- 500% stiffer than injection molded plastics
- 60% less scrap during production than sheet goods
