Quatro CompositesTM introduces structural brackets for aircraft interior applications

Quatro CompositesTM, a leader in design and fabrication of advanced composite structures, has introduced cost effective thermoplastic composite molding to their core manufacturing competencies.

"The future is bright for our business," said Doug Roberts, National Accounts Manager. "The large scale airframe manufacturers have launched a metal-to-composite conversion initiative to reduce weight in small parts such as interior brackets. Thermoplastic composites offer the potential for weight reduction at an affordable cost while meeting aircraft interior environmental requirements."

Quatro's out-of-autoclave thermoplastic composite molding process reduces touch labor and long cycle times commonly associated with thermoset composites. The resulting cost savings are significant and have contributed to the growing popularity of thermoplastics in the aerospace industry.
