Complēt™ Long Fiber Reinforced Structural Thermoplastics
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 PKE and Complēt REC thermoplastics offer further sustainable benefits through design and production. Complēt PKE composites are made from polyketone which combines eco-conscious material consumption and VOC reduction during manufacturing. Complēt REC is made using post-consumer recycled (PCR) nylon 6 resin, post-industrial recycled (PIR) nylon 66 resin, or PIR thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) resin.
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.
