Vectra® liquid crystalline polymers (LCP)

Structure

Circuit block This three dimensional circuit block (conductor tracks of the first shot on the right hand side) for a printer sensor manufactured in a 2-component process with metallizable and non-metallizable Vectra LCP.

A characteristic feature of liquid crystal polymers is their molecular structure. These polymers consist of rigid, rod-like macromolecules, which align in the melt to produce liquid crystal polymer structures. If a liquid crystal polymer melt is subjected to shear or stretching flow, as is the case in typical thermoplastic processing operations, then the rigid macromolecules order themselves into fibers and fibrils, which are frozen-in when the melt cools. This is how the specific morphology of liquid crystal polymers in the solid state is formed.

Characteristics

Tensile strength and stiffness increase in flow direction proportional to the degree of melt orientation. Thus, strength and stiffness are greater in thin-walled parts than in thick walled ones. The Vectra LCP properties are influenced by the high molecular orientation and show a high degree of anisotropy. For example, the thermal coefficient of linear expansion is higher in the direction perpendicular to flow than the parallel one. The anisotropy can be reduced substantially by the use of fillers or reinforcement materials and become comparable to other fiber-reinforced polymers.

Grades

Smart-card reader For smart-card readers Vectra LCP meets the requirements of long-term dimensional stability and good mechanical properties in thin-walled structures.

The rigid, rod-like polymer structure results in improved mechanical properties ­ compared to conventional polymers ­ especially parallel to the direction of orientation, and a number of other exceptional properties. The benefits include: · operating temperatures up to 240°C, temporarily up to 300°C · very low melt viscosity · excellent dimensional stability · very low heat of fusion (extremely short cycle times possible) · flash-free quality with injection molding · very high tensile strength and very high elastic modulus in flow direction · high impact-resistance · very low linear thermal expansion coefficient, in the flow direction, comparable to that of steel and ceramics · inherent flame retardancy (UL 94 V-0, 5 VA) · very good chemical and oxidative resistance · very low water absorption

The wide range of Vectra LCP injectionmolding grades consists of a variety of basic polymers that differ in regard to melt points, heat resistance, tenacity and flow. Many variations of filled and reinforcements (glass and carbon fibers, minerals, graphite, PTFE and combinations thereof) allow the adaptation of these basic polymers to the requirements of the application.

Applications

Vectra liquid crystal polymer is typically used in the manufacture of electrical and electronic components, for fiber optics, computers, telecommunication devices, chemical processing equipment, medical devices, in the automotive and machine construction industries, as well as in air- and spacecraft technology.

Celstran® long fiber reinforced thermoplastics (LFRT)

Structure Grades

The Celstran product line encompasses a number of long-fiber reinforced thermoplastics that can be adapted in tailormade fashion to customer requirements. Nearly all types of semi-crystalline and amorphous thermoplastic polymers are suitable as thermoplastic matrix materials. Celstran LFRT is produced in a special patented pultrusion process through which a high impregnation quality without damage to the fibers is achieved. Every single filament of the reinforcement fibers is wetted intensively in this process. The fibers incorporated in this process can be glass, carbon, aramid, or stainless steel. Fiber length is 11 mm.

Characteristics

Celstran LFRT materials are available as: · glass-fiber reinforced basic grades with fiber content of 30-60%, matrix: PP, PA66, TPU, ABS, PC, HDPE, POM, PPS, PA6, PBT, PC/ABS · Celstran S: contains special steel filaments for electrical screening · glass-fiber reinforced special grades on the basis of the following matrices: PC/ABS, PPS, PBT, POM, HDPE, ABS, PA66, PC, PA6, PET, PP, TPU · C-fiber reinforced (40%), matrix: PA6/6, PPS, PU · aramid-fiber reinforced, matrix: PA6/6, PPS, POM

Applications

Molded parts made of Celstran LFRT provide extremely long fibers and high fiber weight ratios. This results in high dimensional stability and outstanding mechanical properties. The attainable values regarding impact resistance, stiffness, elevated temperature performance and selection of appropriate fatigue resistance are impressive and can be precisely adjusted through the fiber/matrix combination. Celstran LFRT allows for cost saving production methods and short cycle times in component manufacturing. This leads to products with an attractive price/performance ratio that are recyclable several times because of their thermoplastic matrices and high fiber lengths.

Examples of applications that may be suggested include: structural, visible and operating parts in the automotive industry (e.g., battery trays, clutch pedals, gear shift levers, air suction pipes, cable trays and control device housings), in the electrical/electronics area (electromagnetically shielded housings), in machine construction (abrasion-resistant gears), as well as in the sports and leisure equipment (ski binding elements).

Case for gas measuring instrument Celstran LFRT can be made anti-static with small quantities of metal fibers. This case for a gas measuring instrument, to which this technique has been applied, has completely retained its high impact-resistance and permanent air-tightness. Unlike carbon black, which is conventionally used for anti-static equipment, Celstran LFRT can easily be colored.

Control panel support The combination of Celstran's high rigidity with its equally high impact-resistance allows the avoidance of control panel particles being torn out of the polymer matrix, e.g. when the airbag is activated.

Snowboard binding and stiffness High impact-resistance even at low temperatures is one of the decisive criteria for this application of Celstran LFRT in snowboard bindings. 13
