A wide range of thermoplastic composites (TPC) are now being used in automotive applications including vehicle front-end structures, load floors, seat backs, door cassettes and instrument panels. Long fibre thermoplastics (LFT), glass mat thermoplastics (GMT) and fully structural materials such as woven commingled fabric TPCs, e.g. Twintex®, provide a range of properties and mouldability appropriate to specific applications.
