However, previous studies have found that long glass fibers
(GFs) tend to break at the following points of the injection process: (1) when the resin is plasticized inside the heating cylinder [1-7].
In the PL method, a bundle of long glass fiber
impregnated to liquid resin and hardening agent is drawn through the heated die to obtain cured and shaped products.The manufacturing process of CFRP spring is basically identical with the GFRP.
The long glass fiber
filler, of which the surface is treated with a coupling agent, is in a content of 30 to 50 mass percent with respect to its total mass.
Also featured will be LNP Verton and Stamax long glass fiber
specialty compounds that can significantly reduce weight and assembly steps as well as new blends of polycarbonate resin that can eliminate the need for hard coating steps.
The LFT concentrate can be used to elevate stiffness, impact resistance and long-term endurance of polyolefin materials when diluted to long glass fiber
levels of 20 to 40% in finished goods.
Long glass fiber
(LGF) /polyolefin composites are ideal materials for the development of new automotive applications since they can significantly improve the performance of the neat resins.
Trexel's new Long Glass Fiber
Screw design is aimed to minimize damage to reinforcements on standard injection presses.
For long glass fiber
reinforced thermoplastics, the latter are extended by fiber bridging, multiple fiber fracture, and slippage of the fibers within a bundle.
It's now possible to model long glass fiber
parts accurately and dependably.
Strohhacker; "Process development for the production of hollow long glass fiber
reinforced components using gas assisted compression molding," A.
The companies intend to pool complementary resources to develop advanced long glass fiber
reinforced polyurethane technologies as next step alternatives to steel and aluminum in structural automotive applications.
