Prepregging process:

Coaticom’s Prepregging process is based on a powder matrix that is electrostatically charged and accurately deposited onto a variety of reinforced substrates such as fabrics, tows, tapes, and non-wovens. The resin content is precisely and easily controlled by varying the input parameters. Our technology allows us to easily achieve wide impregnation levels, with uniform distribution.
Coaticom’s RapidTP prepregs can be offered with a variety of reinforced fabrics such as Carbon, Glass, Aramid, Basalt, and more. They are available with a wide range of weaving types, including UD.
Coaticom’s prepregs are offered with a wide range of thermoplastic polymers combinations as PE, PP, TPU, PA6, PA11, PEKK, PEKK, and more, also hybrid possibilities can be offered.
We can offer one, or two side coating and also selected coating area – all according to the customer’s needs.
Our prepregs enable a fast, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly process.
