Molding ideas into reality

Designers choose chopped fiber thermoplastic bulk molding compounds from Toray 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 Toray delivers fabrication services and turnkey design, covering prototyping, tool design, part optimization, and complete aerospace grade part fabrication. Our Toray 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 Toray BMCs.

Why choose chopped fiber bulk molding compounds?

Lightweight

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

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