Careful Consideration for Efficient Composite Solutions

When it comes to composite materials and structures, proper selection of resin, fiber, and core material is absolutely critical to the performance and cost of the final component. Careful consideration of the environment and critical loading conditions of the application can help to guide materials selection. For almost 5 decades TPI has been guiding our customers in the proper selection of materials and material combinations for their unique product and application requirements. Materials are the primary drivers in system performance and production costs. Let TPI Composites guide you to the most cost effective, environmentally suitable, and structurally efficient composite solution for your next composites application.
