Polyamide-6 Composite Sheets

Product description

Johns Manville, a leading producer of glass fibers, is developing innovative new technologies to produce composite materials. The recently developed Neomera™ NCF-6 is a non-chrimp fabric based on glass embedded in a thermoplastic matrix being polyamide-6. In particular industries with fast production cycles like automotive industry benefit from the unique characteristics of Neomera™ NCF-6.

The non-chrimp fabrics are available in a area weight up to 2500 g/m2 (UD, biaxial, triaxial, quadraxial) and are fully impregnated due to an unique one step process. The insitu polymerization of caprolactam is leading to a complete impregnation of complex fabrics, void-free composites and a high molecular weight of PA-6.

The thermoplastic matrix allows hot forming capability via compression molding resulting in shorter cycle teams within one minute compared to conventional thermoset composites. The also called organo sheets can be further processed via injection overmoulding.

The composite sheets are characterized by high strength, stiffness, and formability.
