Getting the skinny on thermoplastics

Thermoplastics are an important type of plastics. Unlike thermoset plastics that are 'cured' (cross-linked) to set in their hardened form, thermoplastics shape easily under sufficient heat and simply harden and maintain those shapes - at speeds much faster than thermosets can cure - when cooled. They are used in a myriad of applications from non-stick coatings to packaging materials to containers and pipes. Reinforced thermoplastics are set to become a significant part of the aerospace raw materials market. The fuselage skin is a relatively thin outer surface that covers the fuselage and carries cabin tension and shear loads. The EU-funded EMOTION project is developing the mould technology that will be required for mass production of high-performance, low-cost thermoplastic fuselage skins.
