Long Fiberglass LFT Material: the New Trend of Plastic Substitution Steel
- Dec 18, 2017 -
Due to the metal is not suitable for forming complex shapes, limiting its application in many fields, the cost is relatively high. Therefore, the use of long fiberglass LFT material injection molding, not only can overcome the above shortcomings, but also to meet the required strength of the product to replace the steel to become a new trend.
Long fiberglass LFT materials can be divided into LFT-PP, LFT-PA , LFT-TPU, LFT-PBT, LFT-PPA, LFT-PPS and so on according to the different substrates.
Long fiberglass LFT material injection molding glass fiber length retention rate, good distribution of glass fiber, glass fiber as a reinforcing skeleton throughout the matrix resin, the product has high specific strength, high rigidity, high impact resistance, high dimensional stability, High temperature, low warpage, excellent creep resistance, and coefficient of thermal expansion comparable to metallic materials, LFT-PA materials are available on many occasions as replaceable metals.
LFT-PP material at 120 ℃ high temperature fatigue strength of ordinary glass fiber reinforced PP 2 times, even more than 10% higher than the heat-resistant glass fiber reinforced nylon, so this material has the durability required as a structural member Sexuality and reliability.
In general, long glass fiber materials and other materials compared to the following advantages:
1, Good dimensional stability
2, Excellent fatigue resistance
3, Smaller creep performance
4, Small anisotropy, low warpage deformation
5, Excellent mechanical properties, especially impact-resistant properties
6, Good liquidity, thin-walled products to adapt to processing
Long fiberglass LFT-PP materials are widely used in automotive, machinery, electronics, home appliances, sports and other fields.
