Porcher Industries Japan K.K.

Thermoplastic G/CFRP prepreg

Technical Classification:
[ Intermediate Products ]
[ Products / Processed Products ]
[ cost reduction ] [ lamination technology ] [ moldability ] [ non-outgazing material ] [ recycled or reusable material ] [ substitution for metal ] [ Thermoplastic resin ] [ toughness ] [ weight reduction ]

Point of the Proposed Technology

1/ Excellent impact resistance and toughness against micro-cracking 2/ Good resistance to creep and fatigue 
3/ Hybrid processes : over-molding, over-injection, induction welding  4/ Different forms : braided, woven, mats
5/ Prepreg rolls, organosheets and cut blanks ready to be formed   6/ Exhaustive resins portfolio 
7/ High rate processing                      8/ No exothermic risk event for thick parts
9/ Non-reactive chemistry, no outgazing 10/ Extensive shelf life at room temperature 11/ Infinite remolding


・Long-term storage at room temperature
・Easy reprocessing and recyclable
・Resistant to shock
・Shortening of process cycle
・Increase in yield
・ Even surfaces without post-processing

Conventional Technology

Conventionally, glass cloth, carbon fiber cloth or the like was impregnated with thermoset resin, and prepregs after heating were laminated. Also, it was difficult to supply prepreg in the form of roll.

New Technology

Technology Deployment and Cooperation

Development Stage Commercialization Completed (already delivered: yes)
Intellectual Property Right Yes
Joint Researchers (their role)
Example of Application Structural parts in aerospace, cost-effective parts in aircraft interiors,
Battery casing, bodyworks in automotive
Technical Problems ・Mass production from weaving to prepreg
・Increase of visibility and development in Japanese market
Collaborator needed to Improve Access to tiers 1 and OEM in aerospace, automotive and wind power generation industry
