Composite Blocks

NTPT™ produces blocks and carbon plates by stacking and curing thin ply prepreg layers, normally in a quasi-isotropic format. These composite laminates offer outstanding machining performance and precisely controlled material properties. In a performance context NTPT™ composite blocks are ideal for the manufacture of high precision, complex geometry components combining stiffness, strength and thermal stability with huge weight savings versus metallic components. NTPT™ composite blocks are also used for their unique aesthetic appearance sometimes likened to Damascus steel.

To date, these composite blocks have been used in critical application in satellite manufacturing, aerospace, motorsport and luxury watch making with several new applications under development.
