SGL Group – The Carbon Company (Wiesbaden, Germany) is introducing a thermoplastic‐compatible heavy‐tow carbon fiber, which SGL says is essential for producing fiber composite materials with a thermoplastic matrix. It features a new sizing that optimally bonds the carbon fiber to the thermoplastic matrix. The special properties of carbon fiber, such as high strength and stiffness, are reportedly fully transmitted to thermoplastic components. SGL says thermoplastic fiber composite materials are well suited for applications in the consumer goods market in industries such as electronics and home appliances as well as in series production in the automobile industry. Short cycle times in production and weldability of components significantly contribute to increased efficiency. These materials are also easily repaired and recycled.
