PlastiComp Fills Long Fiber Performance Gap with Development of Hybrid Long Glass+Carbon Fiber Thermoplastic Composites

PlastiComp has developed an innovative set of hybrid thermoplastic composites that combine long glass fiber and long carbon fiber reinforcement together in a single, ready-to-mold composite pellet. The new products expand the performance range of long fiber material options available to product designers while offering a cost effective avenue to adopt the high performance capabilities of carbon fiber.

PlastiComp Develops Drop-in Magnesium Substitute Long Fiber Composites

PlastiComp has expanded its LFT composite pellet product line to include drop-in replacements for die-cast magnesium. The new LFT products duplicate both the mechanical and electrical properties of magnesium in injection molding or extrusion materials that offer up to 40% reductions in weight.
