News International-French

1 Apr 2014

Luvocom SCF, based on polymers such as PA 6, PA 66, PA 46, and PPA, and reinforced with carbon fibers is a range of high strength, impact resistant high-performance compounds for structural metal replacement. 

When compared to traditional carbon fiber reinforced polymers, Luvocom SCF has higher tensile strength (+50%) and stiffness (+15%) as well as improved impact resistance (+90%). When compared to glass and traditional carbon fiber compounds, it has good mechanical properties.

The new range is processable on standard injection molding machines. This high performance compounds offer precisely tuned material properties for a wide range of engineered components in automotive, oil and gas, and industrial markets. Specific applications include dynamic parts in pumps and compressors such as vanes, impellers, thrust washers, and seals.
