Commingling is a process for producing highly flexible thermoplastic prepregs.  Concordia’s unique process intimately blends unsized continuous filament carbon fiber with unsized continuous filament thermoplastic fibers to produce a yarn that can be woven or braided into fabrics.  These commingled fabrics can then be molded into complex thermoplastic composite shapes or tubes when put under heat and pressure.
