Toray Advanced Composites is presenting the latest advancements in lightweight material solutions for future sustainable mobility applications at this week’s JEC World 2022 exhibition in Paris (May 3-5).

Exhibits on display include an urban air mobility aircraft pylon, made for the Joby eVTOL aircraft using Toray’s thermoset-based prepreg systems. Additionally, Toray will present the world’s first 100% thermoplastic composite air intake bulkhead for the Rolls Royce UltraFan engine, manufactured using Toray Cetex TC1225 LMPAEK uni-direcitonal tape.

Toray is also highlighting high performance materials for motorsport and industrial applications, including Toray AmberTool HX56, which is now available in a heavyweight 990gsm reinforcement, enabling faster tool manufacture with exceptional handling in processing and high quality surface finishes.

The company is also launching the Cetex LSP lightning strike protection system, developed for automated processing technologies including automated fibereplacement (AFP) of thermoplastic uni-directional tape. Available with LMPAEK and PPS resin formulations, the LSP system enables a single shot consolidation of LSP functionality during the AFP manufacture of thermoplastic components, further advancing the processing efficiencies of thermoplastic composite materials for aerostructures.
