TFC Carbon Composites

TFC (Thermo Formable Composite) is a versatile thermoformable carbon composite material.

TFC combines the high localised strength of carbon composite with the modelling properties of thermoplastics.  Available in unidirectional and bidirectional, the carbon fibres are interwoven with a revolutionarythermoplastic fibre that allows the material to be heated and formed at lower temperatures.
This thermoplastic material also acts as a high-strength matrix for active performance and flexibility. TFC can be simply custom formed to your mould with a heat gun or by placing the material into an oven to achieve moulding and extra reinforcement materials can be simply heated and applied to customise your brace for the patient’s needs.

Your custom lay-up is then placed in an oven under vacuum at a maximum of 430°F for 30-45 minutes to consolidate the lay-up into one piece for an individual orthotic or prosthetic solution.  TFC is also fully heat remouldable, and allows adjustable fitting just like thermoplastics.

The material comes in unidirectional and bidirectional reinforcement for different structural properties with three different thicknesses and can be cut simply with scissors. Equipment such as vacuum lines, vacuum chamber, water reduction, stands and oven adaptors are also available.
 


TFC Insole Blanks

Extra thin, extra strong carbon composite sole plates.

Unidirectional Sheets

Maximum strength in one direction. Good for uprights, insoles & general appliance strengthening

3D Form (Bidirectional) Sheets

Material gives same strength in 0° and 90° directions.  Good for difficult shapes like the heel.
