Tech4 T-RTM

Tech4 T-RTM
The Tech4 T-RTM project aims the development of a production system for structural components in thermoplastic composite material, based on an emerging thermoplastic liquid molding technology (T-RTM). This disruptive technology for thermoplastic processing has sparked the interest of the automotive industry for its potential to manufacture lightweight structural composite components and thereby meet global directives on sustainability, recyclability and energy efficiency.

With an investment of 1.040.847,93€, this project is co-financed under Portugal 2020 Program in 626.689,58€ from European Regional Development Fund. Tech4 T-RTM project will be in force for two and half years, from December 2020 to June 2023, with BTL as promoter, Simoldes Plásticos and Aveiro University as co-promoters.
