Tenax-E TPUD PEEK-HTS45

Tenax-E TPUD PEEK-HTS45 is a ThermoPlastic UniDirectional prepreg (TPUD) which combines two
high-performance materials. The polymer matrix of PEEK (polyetheretherketone) offers excellent
resistance to chemicals and solvents, whilst the utilisation of Tenax-E HTS45 a high tenacity carbon
fibre manufactured with a tailored sizing for thermoplastics applications, results in a combination of
materials offering an outstanding composite material performance.
