High-Performing Thermoplastic Compounds
February 2008

 Email this Article

A family of ultra-stiff compounds features high-modulus carbon fiber and serves as a replacement for metal alloys as well as many composites. The compounds do not require curing processes and can be injection molded on ordinary machines. Their tensile elastic modulus can reach 50,000 MPa, against 15,000 MPa of an ordinary carbon-reinforced thermoplastic compound; load at break rises up to 300 MPa against 200 MPa of a glass or carbon highly charged reinforced compound. Those base resins allow products to withstand aggressive chemical environments at high temperatures above 200°C. High-modulus reinforcement fibers can also limit fatigue- and creep-related problems.
