Toray to Showcase Advanced Carbon Fiber, Thermoplastic and Thermoset Composite Materials at CAMX 2021 in Dallas, Texas

At the Toray booth, the focus will be on materials supporting the growing urban and advanced air mobility (UAM / AAM) market. Toray meets the challenges of this industry with high quality products that meet stringent requirements for strength, weight and safety. Two of Toray North America divisions – Toray Composite Materials America and Toray Advanced Composites – will showcase products that meet the needs of the UAM / AAM market for materials that enable affordable development and mass production.

Toray Composite Materials America (CMA) to Showcase Its High Performance Adaptive System 2700 prepreg system at the CAMX Theater in the exhibition hall on Tuesday 19 October, at 1:00 p.m.. The 2700 Prepreg System meets the strictest aerospace structural design criteria and enables emerging aerospace programs to move from prototype to high volume production. It cures in less than 5 minutes and can be used in a variety of processing methods including compression molding, out-of-autoclave processing, vacuum-only processing, AFP / ATL, and manual installation.

Toray Advanced Composites (TAC) will highlight Toray Cetex® TC1225, a thermoplastic composite material based on LMPAEK which exhibits high quality and cost effective processing characteristics as well as outstanding mechanical performance properties. It enables high throughput processing in a wide range of processing methods.

Toray Performance Materials Corporation (PMC) will present Toray CFRT® NRG Plates. NRG sheets are unidirectional thermoplastic laminates manufactured using Toray Cetex® TC940 (PET). Toray CFRT® NRG Plates are used in medical applications to limit movement such as with Turf Toe or Hallux Rigidus and partial foot amputations. They are also used to improve the gait of patients and to redistribute pressure to less sensitive areas of the foot for diabetic patients.

Other materials shown include:

  • Torayca® T1100, the next generation intermediate modulus (IM +) carbon fiber with excellent processability in high performance manufacturing methods
  • AmberTool® HX56 Composite Tooling Prepreg that enables the production of a precision composite tool with superior precision and surface finish
