Long Carbon & Glass Fiber Composites

Complēt™ Long Fiber Reinforced Structural Thermoplastics

Metal Replacement Solution

PlastiComp Complēt™ long carbon and glass fiber reinforced thermoplastics are structural injection molding composites with metal replacement performance.

Long fiber technology provides structural performance that can go head-to-head with metals at a fraction of their weight while retaining the processing ease of injection molding, accelerating lightweighting initiatives across a broad range of industries, including automotive, aerospace and sporting goods.

With appropriate material selection and part design optimization, long carbon fiber materials can reduce the weight of components up to 50% compared to aluminum.

Complēt formulations can be customized using engineering resins, from PA to PEEK, for optimal material performance in your specific applications and enable you to produce products that are tougher, stronger and lighter.

Lightweighting

Impact

  • Improved strength and toughness vs. short fiber
  • High strength-to-weight ratio
  • Retains performance across low and elevated temperatures
  • Load carrying creep and fatigue resistance
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Very good corrosion and chemical resistance
  • Can be processed on standard injection molding machines
