TenCate Advanced Composites signs long term supply agreement with Kestrel Aircraft for new all composite turboprop Kestrel K-350

TenCate Advanced Composites North America, a leading global composite materials company for space and aerospace applications, have signed a long term composite materials supply agreement with Kestrel Aircraft, headquartered in Superior (Wisconsin), United States of America. The new all composite turboprop Kestrel K-350 will utilize the latest TC275-1 epoxy prepreg system of TenCate. The TC275-1 system features superior hot/wet strength retention, the ability to cure at either 275°F or 350°F, and can be processed with a free standing post cure for higher temperature performance. Financial details will not be provided.

The Kestrel K-350 represents an all-composite single-engine, turboprop aircraft that will carry up to 8 people at high speed over long distances to places that jets simply can't go. The Kestrel's sleek, aerodynamic lines and large pressurized cabin are the direct result of advanced composite construction. Composites, with their high strength and design versatility, enable a more elegant, innovative airframe design and more spacious, comfortable interior.

Joe Morris, President TenCate Advanced Composites North America states: “TenCate is pleased to be the composite supplier to Kestrel Aircraft. This long term supply agreement represents the continuation of a long term successful relationship we have had with the Kestrel management team. We look forward to first flight and certification.”

Alan Klapmeier, CEO, Kestrel Aircraft, says: “I have worked closely with TenCate in past years and have been impressed with their strong customer focus and strategic growth over the past two decades. We are pleased to entrust them with supplying consistently high quality prepreg materials for the K-350.”
