Toray Composite Materials America, Inc. and Toray Advanced Composites to Exhibit at SAMPE 2019 and Showcase Advanced Carbon Fiber, Engineered Products and Material Technologies.
For the 3nd year in a row, Toray Composite Materials America, Inc. will be exhibiting at SAMPE Conference and Exhibition to promote their latest innovations in Carbon Fiber and Composite Material. This year the conference is being held in Charlotte, North Carolina from May 20th to 23rd.
Additionally, Toray Advanced Materials (previously, Tencate Advanced Campsites) will be exhibiting at SAMPE Conference and Exhibition as well. Toray Advanced Composites has transitioned into the Toray family and will continue to provide the best value to customers under their new identity. Toray has a long heritage of product innovation and production excellence that will help reinforce Toray Advanced Composites’ strengths and will enable us to more effectively support our customers in growing markets
Stop by and see Toray Composite Materials America, Inc. latest innovations in carbon fibers and engineered products at Booth H5 and make sure to stop by Toray Advanced Materials, Booth K9, for even more product innovations in thermoplastic and thermoset composite materials.
Carbon Fiber Materials
Toray’s TORAYCA® brand carbon fibers are globally recognized for their outstanding performance, quality and processing consistency, making them the preferred choice of designers, engineers and fabricators worldwide.
Standard Modulus Carbon Fibers – typically exhibit a fiber modulus of 33-34 msi, or slightly higher. These are the most cost-effective fibers as measured by tensile strength or modulus per unit cost.
Intermediate Modulus Carbon Fibers (IM) – exhibit a tensile modulus of 42 msi. Originally developed for aerospace applications, IM fibers now find use in recreational and industrial applications as well.
High Modulus Carbon Fibers MJ and M-series – represent the highest modulus PAN-based carbon fibers available.
High Strength Carbon Fibers – Toray offers the highest tensile strength and highest strain-to-failure carbon fibers available in the world. Toray is a leading global supplier of high quality composites prepreg materials and offers a full product suite; Unidirectional Tape, Slit Tape, Fiberglass Fabrics, Carbon Fabrics and Resin Products. Toray’s prepreg products are used for Aerospace, General Aviation, Recreation, Sporting Goods and Industrial applications.
Carbon Fiber Composite Prepreg Materials
Aerospace – Toray’s 3900 series prepregs are used for aircraft primary structures. The prepreg can come in a variety of forms including unidirectional tape for manual or automated tape layering applications, slit-tape-tow for automated fiber placement applications, and plain-weave carbon and glass fabrics.
General Aviation – Out of Autoclave (OOA) – Toray’s 2510 resin system is specifically formulated to meet the stringent requirements of general aviation primary structural materials. Design Allowables accepted by the FAA and listed in CMH-17 Vol 2.
Recreation / Sporting Goods – G-94M is Toray’s standard 250°F to 300°F cure system. This prepreg can be used for multiple purposes, and is found primarily in recreational and sporting goods applications. It provides excellent mechanical properties, controlled flow, great handling, and a high Tg.
Industrial – Toray’s G83C resin system provides a quick cure (290°F for 20 min) or a low temperature cure (185°F for 6 hours) with the capability to achieve class “A” surface finish. This resin system can be used in a variety of applications such as industrial and aircraft grade products.
