Technical Data Sheet

Nomenclature Complēt® LCF50-TPU
Polymer Matrix Rigid Thermoplastic Polyurethane (ETPU)
Reinforcement Type Long Carbon Fiber
Fiber Content (Weight Percent) 50%
Color(s) Black
Processing Method Injection Molding
Availability Global

Complēt® LCF50-TPU is a 50% long carbon fiber reinforced rigid thermoplastic polyurethane (ETPU) composite manufactured using a pultrusion process that melt impregnates the fiber with the matrix resin to maximize performance. Long carbon fiber reinforcement provides this composite with significantly increased stiffness and strength. This composite’s mechanical properties allow its use in a wide range of applications across multiple market segments as a lightweight replacement for metals or as an engineered substitute for other materials.
