Xencor™ Long Fiber Thermoplastics (LFT) are innovative injection-moldable reinforced products that target challenging metal replacement applications and semi-structural applications. They are designed specifically to achieve maximum synergy between high performance, design freedom, weight reduction and per-part cost economy through fast cycle times.
The key feature of Xencor™ LFT compounds is to create a unique 3D entangled long fiber network inside the molded part, during the molding process. This network actually forms a strong fiber skeleton, which ensures an optimal dimensional stability and significantly improves the thermal-mechanical properties compared to traditional highly filled short-fiber reinforced plastics.
Xencor™ LFT compounds deliver an unrivalled set of properties to meet the most stringent requirements
Unique combination of high stiffness and outstanding impact resistance Excellent retention of performance at high temperature Extremely low creep under high permanent loading Outstanding fatigue resistance High dimensional stability and very low warpage Excellent surface finish
