  • Electrical Barrier Material - Voltoid (R) HP-450
    Voltoid (R) HP-450 is a high density composite material with aramid fiber. It provides superior flame protection and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures, and accepts varnish better than most aramid papers. It is available in 0.4 to 3.2mm gauges without lamination.
  • Coconut Husks and Fiber Reinforced Polymers
    Fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs) are a relatively new category of composite materials that combine stiffness and strength with weight reduction and corrosion resistance. Known also as polymer matrix composites (PMCs), these fiber-reinforced materials typically contain glass, carbon, basalt, aramid
  • Laser Machining Fiber-Reinforced Plastics
    Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) is a composite structural material containing high-strength fibrous embedded reinforcements which develop mechanical properties greatly superior to the base polymer (called 'matrix' in this context). The fibers are usually fiberglass, carbon, or aramid (a family
  • Plastics that don't wear out their welcome
    urethane bearings led to the selection of a nylon 6/6 compound with aramid fiber and PTFE. The bearings separate the spinning metal cutting blades, which instantly cut through lines, nets, and weeds before they become entangled or damage the running gear. The bearings are water lubricated
  • Self-Healing spacecraft
    , and antenna systems that must withstand the rigors of interstellar travel. Composites used for spacecraft typically have a polymer matrix made from thermosetting (epoxies, phenolics, and polyimides) resins reinforced with aramid, carbon, or glass fibers. But there is a common weakness with most
  • Thermoplastic Composites
    most experience with reinforced thermoplastics has been based on these resins. The higher performance resins -- PES, PEI, PPS, PEEK, and PEK, for example -- are also available in glass-fiber-reinforced composites, and some with carbon or aramid fibers as well. Glass-fiber reinforcement improves most
  • Synchronous Belts
    providing the same positive engagement of chain or gears. A stable belt length is critical for synchronous applications, so they were originally reinforced with steel. Today the most common reinforcement is glass fiber, but aramid is used if maximum capacity is required. Standard sections are MXL

  • An excellent ablative composite based on PBO reinforced EPDM
    Comparing with the severe breakage occurred in short aramid fibers as fillers, only some necking deformation is observed in PBO fibers filled EPDM after processed.
