TMAP

Thermoplastic Monomer Automatic Parts

This programme will take existing partner technology and combine them in a novel way and then be developed as part of this programme.  The intent is to address the fatigue and creep issues typical of thermoplastic (TP) based composites by using a combination of unique 3D carbon fibre weave design by M Wright & Sons Ltd, combined with the use of a TP matrix. To enhance the properties further, novel surface treatments (sizing) will be developed by Oxford Advanced Surfaces to increase the interfacial properties of the resin and the matrix. University of Derby will provide their expertise with material testing and simulation of the new material. In this project, Far-UK will lead the project and will also work on the development of the demonstrator component, designed to exploit at the best the novel material architecture.
