TenCate and Airbus continue partnership in resp...

Airbus recently signed in Toulouse, France the extension of its
existing Memorandum of Understanding with TenCate, Stork Fokker AESP
and The Netherlands Aerospace Group. The entry of another six Dutch
industrial companies and knowledge institutes to the Thermoplastic
Affordable Primary Aircraft Structure (TAPAS) consortium is expected
within a few weeks.

The TAPAS consortium consists of companies and institutes active in
the Dutch aviation industry that are working closely with Airbus in
the field of material, processing and joining technology. This
technology will be further developed specifically for future Airbus
applications, including primary structure parts such as fuselage and

Role of TenCate
TenCate was the birthplace of the development of light-weight
thermoplastic composite materials for the aviation industry and has
enjoyed a relationship with Airbus relating to developments in this
field for some considerable time. Fibre-reinforced composites
originate in an innovation process based on textile technology.
Composite materials from TenCate consist of a compound of carbon or
glass fibres that, with the addition of synthetic resins, are
consolidated into plate material and marketed under the name TenCate
Cetex®. The characteristic of this material includes the fact that
when heated in a molding press it becomes deformable (thermoplastic).
The material can be industrially processed into moulded parts for
wings, interiors and other parts.

Thanks to an intensive partnership with knowledge partners - such as
the University of Twente and the Technical University of Delft - in
the field of technological research and development partners in the
TAPAS consortium are able to create more applications for innovative
materials. The past few decades have seen a continuing increase in
the use of lightweight composite materials, including TenCate Cetex®,
in aircraft. Dutch companies and knowledge institutes in this way
make an important contribution to the sustainable character of

Sustainable contribution to eco-efficiency
Group Director Frank Meurs of TenCate Advanced Composites Europe is
enthusiastic: 'Now that TenCate Cetex® is being incorporated into
aircraft interiors and secondary structural parts in an ever wider
series of applications, we are approaching the moment when the major
primary structure parts of aircraft will be made of thermoplastic
composite. Thanks to our unidirectional tape technology, a
lightweight fuselage of thermoplastic composite, for example, can
also be built in the near future. Composites already bring
significant and sustainable advantages through their
weight-reduction, such as fuel saving, noise reduction and a
reduction in emissions'.

TenCate makes a significant contribution to the efforts of Airbus to
achieve eco-efficiency. This is, however, on condition that now too
the technology for design methodology and the specific processing of
thermoplastic are further developed. In view of the trends in the
market, the scale on which the material can be used will increase
considerably. Frank Meurs: 'An integral project like TAPAS, in which
all disciplines in the value chain work together, is therefore
invaluable to us. The aviation industry is a knowledge-intensive
industry and is thus of great economic value. TenCate is proud to be
able to work with other specialist Dutch players in the aviation

The Netherlands Agency for Aerospace Programmes (NIVR) and the
Ministry of Economic Affairs have also been closely involved in the
development and establishment of the partnership between Airbus and
the Dutch industrial companies and the knowledge cluster.
