What are long fiber reinforced thermoplastics?
Long Fibre reinforced thermoplastic (LFT) forms by fibres of granulate length which are subjected to the so-called pultrusion process. In this process the fibre strands are continuously drawn through a polymer melt, embedded in the polymer matrix and finally granulated after cooling. The impregnation quality determines the subsequent component quality. So different combinations of polymer matrix and fibre material result in a large variety of possible LFT materials.
Long-fiber-reinforced thermoplastics (LFT) are mainly processed by injection molding and enable weight reduction while maintaining high load-bearing capacity for complex components. For this reason, they are of great importance not only for the automotive sector.
We offer LFT in the polymer matrices PA6 / PA66 / PP / PET / PBT in different glass fibre contents.
Polymer matrix: PA6 / PA66 / PP / PET / PBT
Color: Natural, black, individual
Length: 11,5 mm
Width: 2,5 mm diameter
LCF thermoplastics offer the highest strength and stiffness performance obtainable with injection molding and reduce weight in part manufacturing to increase efficiency or reduce fatigue. Long fibre reinforced thermoplastics based on PA66 matrix with 25 % or 40 % carbon fibre.
SKYi OL1135 is a special light and heat stabilized glass fibre reinforced polypropylene grade, for injection moulding and extrusion. The glass fibres, chemically coupled to the polypropylene matrix, providing outstanding mechanical properties.
SKYi MU1166 is a special utility long glass fibre reinforced polyamide grade, for injection moulding and extrusion. It is based on a high proportion of recycled PA66. The typical percentage of recycled material is about 55%. The long glass fibres, chemically coupled to the polyamide matrix, providing outstanding mechanical properties.
