Description

Long Fiber Thermoplastic (LFT, PPA with 30% carbon fiber) compounds are formulated for demanding applications which require high stiffness and good impact such as metal replacement or other structural applications. These products exhibit enhanced physical and mechanical properties versus standard short fiber products. Benefits of LFT compounds include improved impact strength, elastic modulus, and material strength across wide temperature ranges from subambient to highly elevated. Furthermore, LFT compounds have been shown to offer improved performance in the areas of creep and fatigue performance, improved dimensional stability, and exhibit an exceptional surface finish when compared to traditional highly filled short fiber products.
