PlastiComp Inc. (Winona, Minn.) has introduced Complete MT, a maximum toughness long fiber (LFT) polyamide that is said to have equivalent strength to industry standard LFT polyamides, yet is extremely tough with up to twice as much resistance to impact forces as standard materials. Reinforced with long glass fiber up to 60 percent by weight, MT composites also offer good injection molding processing characteristics capable of producing complex geometries with thin wall sections. These materials are colorable and therefore also suitable for structural applications that have aesthetic requirements. Commercial applications include performance sporting goods, consumer durables, and heavy appliances.
