Are fibers other than glass available?

Long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) composites are available with glass, aramid, stainless steel, or carbon fiber reinforcement at loadings up to 60% by weight.

  • Glass fiber is the most popular and cost effective reinforcement used for LFT composites
  • Aramid fiber is utilized for its excellent wear resistant properties
  • Sainless steel fiber for its electrostatic dissipation (ESD) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding properties
  • Carbon fiber provides additional enhancements in flexural modulus and potential weight reductions while also providing ESD properties
