Innovations

Basalt Fiber Reinforced Composites Added to PlastiComp’s Complēt Long Fiber Product Portfolio

PlastiComp, Inc., announced that it has introduced a line of basalt fiber reinforced long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) composites. These new LFT products offer a significant increase in performance over short basalt fiber filled materials and are available in multiple resins matrices with 30-60% by weight fiber loadings.

PlastiComp Adds LFT Pultrusion Line Dedicated to Manufacturing Carbon-Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics

PlastiComp has recently commissioned a new pultrusion compounding line dedicated to producing carbon-fiber reinforced LFT composite compounds at its Winona, Minn., manufacturing and corporate headquarters location.

New High Flow Long-Fiber Thermoplastic Composite Compounds From PlastiComp

PlastiComp’s proprietary high flow formulas enable molders to achieve cycle time reductions up to 25% along with injection pressure reductions of up to 40% in thin wall parts (less than 0.100”). Flow lengths in thin wall parts can also be increased by as much as 30% (based on spiral flow data).

PlastiComp partners with DSM to develop bio-based thermoplastic composites

PlastiComp has signed a partnership agreement with Royal DSM to develop bio-based and sustainable Long Fiber Thermoplastic (LFT) composite materials for the automotive and other performance-driven markets.

PlastiComp Adds Long Fiber Thermoplastic Pipes, Beams, and Profiles to Portfolio

PlastiComp has installed and commissioned a patent-pending manufacturing line for extruding Long Fiber Thermoplastic (LFT) pipes, beams, and other structural profiles. The crosshead profile-dies used are designed to co-extrude fiber tows or unidirectional tapes as continuous axial reinforcement in the extruding profile.
