LGF reinforced Compounds
Safe under Extreme Loads
LGF Reinforced Compounds
As design materials, plastics are now well-established in many areas of our lives. To improve strength, thermoplastics are typically reinforced with glass or carbon fibres. Particularly at higher loads such as impact stress or in applications at higher or lower temperatures, the fibre length in short glass fibre reinforced compounds is insufficient, as the polymer matrix begins to soften or become more brittle in such cases. Special compounds reinforced with long glass fibres were developed for this reason.
Long glass fibre compounds have been successfully used in various segments of the industry for several decades. The product lines AKROMID®, AKROTEK® and AKROLOY® LGF compounds offer solutions that extend to other segments thanks to the use of base polymers.
Advantages of long glass fibre reinforced compounds:
Better mechanics at increased temperatures
Higher working absorption during impact stress

Over the last 10 years, diecast and stamped bent parts have been substituted with engineering plastics especially in the automotive sector as well as in sanitary installations and general mechanical engineering where they have become the most feasible solution.
