GPA6 UD Tapes

Features

GPA6 UD tape is 60% continuous glass fiber reinforced unidirectional tape. The continuous glass fiber is infused in polyamide 6 prepregs. Its tensile and flexural strength is higher than that of PA66 UD tapes, and of course, it is a little thicker.

Application

The GPA6 UD tape in TOPOLO is made of CFRT (continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic) composite, a smart material introduced to the production of automobiles and car components like accelerators, and brake pedals, seat frames, and seat bases. With the strong properties of CFRT, our UD tapes can be widely used in the automotive and transportation industry.
