Reinforced Plastics for Electrical & Electronics Applications
When combined with plastic resins, fibers and other reinforcements can improve physical properties, such as strength, stiffness, load-bearing ability, and wear resistance.
Compared to metal, structurally engineered compounds give designers the freedom to consolidate parts and utilize lower cost, lighter weight parts. These materials are an excellent alternative to metal in applications where strength, dimensional stability, chemical resistance, and/or toughness are important.
Long-glass fiber compounds offer improved stiffness/toughness, dimensional stability, creep and fatigue performance over short-glass fiber.
