Thermoplastic Chopped Strands
Thermoplastic chopped strands are combined with various thermoplastic resins to produce a multitude of end-use products.
Thermoplastic chopped strands are compounded with a variety of thermoplastics depending on the application requirements. Reinforced thermoplastic parts are commonly produced in the sophisticated high-speed injection molding process using metal tools. The combination of pressure from the injection molding process and metal tools can produce intricate, complex parts in very short cycle times. Processing characteristics for thermoplastic chopped strands include fiber strand integrity and flowability in relation to the injection process to deliver the desired mechanical properties and surface quality.
