Continuous Fiber Reinforced Tapes and Laminates
Lightweight. Strong. Durable. Recyclable.
High strength, unidirectional fibers and engineered thermoplastic resins combine to create continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRTP) tapes and laminates that can help reduce weight while maintaining exceptional strength and impact resistance in a variety of applications.
Available in rolls of unidirectional tape, as well as X-Ply™ 0˚/90˚ and other multi-ply laminates, Polystrand materials can be post-formed and co-molded with mixed materials in thermoforming and injection molding processes to achieve part designs and cycle times that meet the most demanding performance targets. And because they are thermoplastic, these CFRTP materials are much more easily recycled compared to thermoset materials.
- Up to 120" slit-to-width laminate material (125" raw edge material)
- Thickness from 0.010" tape to 0.375" multi-ply laminates
- 58% to 80% fiber by weight
- PP, PE, PETG, PA6, and PA66 resin systems
- Available with customized cosmetic films and scrims
- Available in sheet form or rolls up to 10,000 pounds
