PlastiComp has introduced Complçt MT maximum toughness long fibre (LFT) polyamides which they say have equivalent strength to industry standard LFT polyamides yet are extremely tough with up to twice as much resistance to impact forces as the standard materials.
Reinforced with long glass fibre up to 60% by weight, PlastiComp say MT composites also offer outstanding injection moulding processing characteristics capable of producing complex geometries having thin wall sections. They say these materials are colourable and therefore also suitable for structural applications having aesthetic requirements. Commercial applications include performance sporting goods, consumer durables, and heavy appliances.
Complçt thermoplastic composite pellets, produced by PlastiComp with LFT technology, are made for the injection moulding market in standard as well as custom formulations. To assist customers with starting and completing their projects PlastiComp can provide advanced technology part moulding and contract research and development.
