One stop shop for structural thermoplastic composites projects
- Companies in search of a solution specifically using TPC
- Companies that need a solution for a challenge or in order to reach a goal, that requires a radical change in the choice of materials
A gamechanger in shifting roadtraffic to rail
Replacement of heavy metal floor constructions by a completely new structure. Our panels provide structure to the floor, making the old heavy metal supporting structure redundant. In short, we do not just add floor elements, instead we replace the entire structure.
We support the Green Deal!
Design of a new swap floor for intermodal 45′ curtain side container
Re-engineering the existing swap floor for a major actor in rental, trading and consulting for the intermodal transport, modal shift and mobile storage.
Agesia solved the persistent equation between loading capacity and maximum weight by replacing steel with structural thermoplastic composites, saving 1 ton at maximum loading height, while loading 2 extra pallets.
Thanks to our closed loop development method, the design time is reduced from several years to a maximum of one year.
Extensive testing in our own test environment
Sag freely test 1.5R (52 ton)
Johns Manville, Agesia, and Aerlyte won the 2023 People’s Choice Award at the SPE ACCE Conference in Novi, MI, celebrating their innovation in the automotive industry.
The collaboration revolutionizes the automotive construction using Neomera PA-6 organosheets integrated into a thermoplastic composite sandwich panel.
Johns Manville’s proprietary organosheet technology, combining surface-activated glass fabric and polymerised PA-6 (AP nylon), forms impeccable Neomera PA-6 organosheets. Agesia utilises these sheets for sandwich panel floors, significantly reducing weight while enhancing load-bearing capacity.
The award-winning collaboration between Johns Manville, Agesia, and Aerlyte highlights dedication to innovation and automotive excellence. The 2023 People’s Choice Award at the SPE ACCE Conference underscores their commitment to advancing automotive technologies.
- Reduced Mass: Enhanced fuel efficiency and performance through advanced materials and design.

Pick-up floor load and fatigue testing
- Agesia panel 18mm
- Load 600 kg

20 cycles stroke 200mm
No damage or plastic deformation
Pick-up floor load Bearing test
Perfect linear behaviour
No plastic deformation
Composite butterfly covers
The field test with a container with composite covers immediately shows an important advantage of this material. No plastic deformation occurs as a result of vacuum during unloading.
In addition, we can easily and automatically control the opening and closing of the light lids with just a light motor.
