Bulk Molding Compounds for Aerospace Applications

TenCate’s collection of sliced fiber bulk molding compounds (BMCs) let designers make complex composite fragments effortlessly. TenCate BMCs are designed for the accomplishment of your aerospace, satellite , and high-performance products.

Molding ideas into reality

Designers choose chopped fiber thermoplastic bulk molding compounds from TenCate to form intricate compound structures employing aerospace grade thermoplastics like PEKK, PEEK, PPS, and PAEK.

Replacing metallic structures with lightweight compression molded BMC components can decrease over 40% weight compared to aluminum components, with the additional advantage of being resistant to fire and solvents. Moreover, thermoplastic BMCs can be shaped in short thermoforming cycles of 10-15 minutes, and can withstand very high amount of structural load compared to the traditional metals.

CCS Composites, a wholly owned subsidiary of TenCate delivers fabrication services and turnkey design, covering prototyping, tool design, part optimization, and complete aerospace grade part fabrication. Our TenCate Compression Molded Parts Library gives the information you require to get going and succeed.

Reduce your hurdles relating to part fabrication, and expand your limits with TenCate BMCs.

Why choose chopped fiber bulk molding compounds?


BMC components have higher tensile strengths, and are 40% lighter compared to aluminum. They are substantially less complicated to design compared to continuous fiber composites.

High strength

BMCs are formed into intricate structures using compression molding. Compression molded structures can be custom-made with integrated stiffeners and ribs to withstand structural loads frequently beyond the carrying capacity of metals.

Corrosion resistance

TenCate's bulk molding structures are unaffected by corrosion and solvents. Matrices cover thermoplastic and epoxy resins like PEI, PEEK, PEKK, and PPS.
