|Polymer Matrix||High Flow Nylon 6/6 (Polyamide 6/6)|
|Reinforcement Type||Long Carbon Fiber|
|Fiber Content (Weight Percent)||40%|
|Processing Method||Injection Molding|
Velocity® LCF40-PA66 is a 40% long carbon fiber reinforced high flow nylon 6/6 (polyamide 6/6) thermoplastic 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. The high flow characteristics of the polymer make this composite easier to process, especially in thin wall sections, and improve the surface appearance of molded components. 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.
