Carbon Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastic Resin Prepreg Development Used in Aviation Project
Date of Project: 01.04.2014 – 31.08.2019
Project Duration: 48 Months +
Project Budget: $7,960,269 + 6,835,739 TL
Support Mechanism: The Republic of Turkey, Precidency of Defence Industries R&D Projects Support
Outputs:Unidirectional and 5HS weave carbon fiber reinforced PEEK matrix structural thermoplastic prepreg material, 4HS weave glass fiber reinforced PEEK matrix non-structural thermoplastic prepreg material, Weaving loom for unidirectional and woven fiber reinforced thermoplastic matrix prepreg
Keywords: Thermoplastic composite, thermoplastic prepreg, PEEK, carbon fiber, glass fiber, aviation
The aim of the project is to develop, produce and test the material and design verification of a promising, non-produced thermoplastic resin prepreg material which is subject to export license in our country.
With the project, thermoplastic PEEK resin structural carbon fiber reinforced unidirectional and 5HS satin fabric prepreg and non-structural glass fiber reinforced 4HS satin fabric prepreg material will be developed.
Dependence on foreign sources will be eliminated for the materials which are of great importance for the aviation sector and have difficulty in procuring from abroad with the production of domestic prepreg materials, and will bring great gains in terms of know-how to our country.
