Jiangsu Hansu launches high-performance UD composite tapes featuring SABIC’s ULTEM™ powder at China Composites Expo 2020
Jiangsu Hansu New Material Co., Ltd. introduced at China Composites Expo 2020, in booth #3511, its new family of high-performance, unidirectional (UD) composite tapes — H-poly-Stallone-CF7000_PEI — made with continuous carbon fiber and SABIC’s ULTEM™ 1000F3SP powder. Jiangsu Hansu, a leading thermoplastic composites manufacturer based in Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province, worked with SABIC to develop the new UD tapes for potential use in high-performance aerospace applications such as seat frames and luggage compartments. As a possible replacement for metal, these UD tapes provide opportunities to reduce weight, improve fuel efficiency and support sustainability—key goals for the aircraft industry. SABIC’s ULTEM™ powder, a special form of advanced polyetherimide (PEI), elevates the performance of tapes by supplying inherent flame retardance, long-term heat stability, outstanding strength and stiffness, and dimensional stability.
