PlastiComp recently completed a capital improvement project at its Winona, Minn., manufacturing and corporate headquarters facility which moved its research and development functions into a dedicated laboratory space.
Based on its analysis of the long fiber composites market, Frost & Sullivan recognized PlastiComp with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation for our hybrid long glass+carbon fiber composites.
Hybrid long glass+carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic composites from PlastiComp provide the benefits of long glass fiber and long carbon fiber together in a single, affordable ready-to-mold pellet.
PlastiComp recently revealed the enhanced aesthetic capabilities of its Velocity high flow nylon long fiber reinforced composites. The products simplify the injection molding of high fiber content LFT components by more easily producing the smooth, fiber-free finish desired on external surfaces.
PlastiComp is among organizations partnering with the U.S. Department of Energy in its Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation. The IACMI will engage in research and development focused on lowering the cost of advanced fiber reinforced polymer composites as well as efficient manufacturing and recycling processes.
