Coventive Composites have improved the processability of their fibre reinforced thermoplastic tapes for use in the manufacture of pressure vessels. Additives were selected and incorporated into the tapes to assist with processing speed and to improve the final overall physical properties of the material.
Various chemical and physical tests were performed on test samples to confirm the performance of the tapes, including hoop tests on the consolidated product.
