PIN FR composites for performance reinforced polycarbonates

pinf fr compositesLanxess (pinfa member company) has launched a new set of PIN flame retardant, continuous-fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composites with polycarbon matrix. The halogen-free materials offer exceptional flame retardance, achieving UL94 V0 for 0.4 – 2mm thickness sheets. Composites are available with glass, carbon and glass/carbon fibre reinforcement and fibre volume content of 45-55 %.

They offer high mechanical performance, for example flexural modulus of 40 – 54 GPa (carbon fibre) or 20 -24 GPa (glass fibre) and are adapted for production of large items requiring thin-wall and stiff housing parts, such as notebooks, tablets and TV sets.
