PolyOne Corp.’s (Avon Lake, Ohio) new OnForce LFT long-fiber thermoplastic compounds are optimized for surface finish, stiffness and impact strength, and are said to offer higher performance and better aesthetics than similar products in applications that involve metal replacement and structural elements. They retain properties across a wide temperature range, from -20°C to 160°C (-4°F to 320°F). Benefits include better high chemical, creep and fatigue resistance and dimensional stability than highly filled short-fiber products and other long-fiber thermoplastics. The compounds are currently available in a range of base polymer/reinforcement combinations, including polypropylene, polyamide 6.6, and thermoplastic polyurethane.
