TenCate and Fokker sign long-term supply agreement

On the Paris Air Show in France, TenCate Advanced Composites and Fokker Aerostructures today sign a long-term agreement to provide thermoplastic composite materials of TenCate for the construction of several aircraft components by Fokker Aerostructures for the international aerospace industry.

The agreement covers the supply of continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic laminates and a range of semipreg composite materials that are used in commercial, regional and military aircraft built by OEM's like Airbus, Boeing, Gulfstream, Dassault and AgustaWestland. Advantages of the application of these light-weight composites are, among others, the saving of kerosene, and the ability to produce large volumes in series.

This long-term supply agreement is an important step forward for the close cooperation between TenCate Advanced Composites and Fokker Aerostructures. Frank Meurs, group director of TenCate Advanced Composites, explains: 'The new agreement emphasizes the success of our advanced thermoplastic composites in general, and in particular of our productive relationship with Fokker within the innovative Dutch aerospace industry. This agreement also underlines the continuation of our close partnership since the early 1990s for the supply of thermoplastic composite materials, designed for the part production of Fokker Aerostructures for the international aerospace industry.'
