TCAC_CW_CAMX2017_TC380Ad_V1b_R2_Full_Dec2017 The best way to predict the future is to invent it. - Alan Kay The latest advancements in airframe design require the latest generation of composite materials. Introducing TenCate TC380, TenCate's newest generation out-of-autoclave epoxy resin technology. TC380 is the culmination of over five years of development focused specifically on meeting the evolving needs of the aerostructures market. TC380 delivers a unique combination of impact resistance and open hole compressive strength that allows for the design of highly efficient aerostructures. Combined with TenCate's industry leading service and support, TenCate's TC380 toughened epoxy prepreg materials change the game for airframe designers. The future of composite materials has arrived. TenCate TC380 features: • High impact resistance – CAI of 42 ksi/289 MPA • Excellent open hole compressive strength – 45 ksi/310 MPa • Excellent hot/wet strength – 250°F/121°C service temperature, T g of 394°F/201°C • Robust processing – Vacuum Bag Only (VBO) or Autoclave • Exceptional out time – 30 days • High fracture toughness Visit us at CAMX 2017 - Booth N2
