Can long fiber composites be molded in very thin walls?

Long fiber thermoplastic (LFT) composites exhibit excellent flow characteristics, even at high fiber loadings of 60% by weight. Not only can LFT composites flow long distances, they routinely fill intricate and thin wall sections with remarkable ease. Evaluation of any material in its end-use design should always be conducted to ensure appropriate properties are maintained.
