LFT - Long fiber thermoplastics


Product description

The Xencor™ family of long fiber thermoplastics (LFT) are innovative, long-fiber reinforced structural products that target challenging metal replacement applications and semi-structural applications. Xencor™ compounds are formulated using specialty polymers and engineering polymers, including: polyphenylene sulfide (PPS); polyphthalamide (PPA); polyarylamide (PARA); high-performance polyamide (HPPA); and polyamide 66 (PA66). Each formulation is designed specifically to achieve maximum synergy between: high performance, design freedom, functions integration, weight reduction and per-part cost economy through fast cycle times.

The function of LFTs is to create, during the injection molding process, a unique 3D entangled long glass fiber network inside the molded part. This glass fiber network really forms a strong fiber skeleton, which ensures optimal dimensional stability and significantly improves the thermal-mechanical properties compared to traditional highly filled short-fibers plastics.

This results in the following properties for Xencor™ LFTs:

- Combination of high stiffness and outstanding impact strength

- Unrivaled retention of mechanical performance at high temperature

- Extremely low tendency to creep under high permanent loading

- Outstanding fatigue resistance

- High dimensional stability and very low warpage

- High shear strength and high burst pressure

- Excellent surface finish

- Ease of processing and fast cycle times
