About Us and our History

Defining leading solutions in thermoplastics composites

Tepex® is a high performance composite laminate system made with thermoplastic polymers. The innovative combination of continuous reinforcing fibers with thermoplastic polymers results in exceptionally high strength and rigidity, coupled with extremely low weight. Tepex® enables cost-effective parts fabrication processes suitable for mass-production, especially in combination with injection molding.

Due to its versatility and outstanding property profile, Tepex® addresses the megatrends of our time: green mobility, individual properties and design, enhanced safety and durability as well as sustainable solutions for the protection of resources and the environment. Whenever lightweight design, stiffness and strength, fatigue resistance, energy absorption and functional integration are required in high volume, Tepex® is the material of choice.
