LUDWIGSHAFEN/WIESBADEN, GERMANY: BASF and the SGL Group will jointly develop a composite material based on a reactive polyamide system and suitable carbon fibre, serving the cost-effective production of thermoplastic carbon fibre-reinforced composites. The material system is intended for use in the T-RTM process (thermoplastic resin transfer moulding) as well as the reactive injection moulding process, and permits considerably shorter processing cycles than conventional thermosetting RTM.

As a leading producer of polyamide and caprolactam, a precursor of polyamide, BASF is contributing its competence in the development of new polymer matrix systems. The SGL Group is utilizing its material expertise along the carbon fibre value-added chain and in high-temperature processes.

“It is only with a custom-formulated finish that this optimal bonding can form and the carbon fibre transmit their unique stiffness and strength properties fully to the part. On the basis of our many years of industrial experience, we are able to optimize processes and materials along the entire value-added chain of carbon fibre technology for new applications,” said Dr Hubert Jager, Head of Technology & Innovation, SGL Group.
