ABOUT THE TPAC
The ThermoPlastic composites Application Center in the Netherlands, is an independent innovation, research and development center that aims at the understanding of thermoplastic composites and their manufacturing processes on an applied research level.
The TPAC is focused on the application of thermoplastic composites and related technology by developing proofs of concept for SMEs. The TPAC provides a breeding ground for regional and national companies who want to innovate with thermoplastic composites by offering access to expertise and manufacturing facilities.
Research conducted in the TPAC follows the underlying trinity of design, materials and processes. Special attention is given to composite materials, in particular the application of fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites. The main research areas of the TPAC are:
OUR PROJECT PARTNERS
TPAC is a non-profit organisation collaborating in research projects with industrial (especially SMEs) and scientific partners. In addition, we aim at increasing the level of understanding of the possibilities for thermoplastic composites by organizing courses and symposia on selected topics.
