Nylon specialist Rhodia (Lyon, France) has added to its Technyl line of resins a patented polyamide-based matrix, designed for use with continuous glass- or carbon-fiber reinforcements. The low viscosity of this formulation reportedly ensures that it fully wets out and impregnates fibers. Available as a semifinished product, including prepregged fabrics and sheet stock, the material is said to offer good stiffness, strength, aging and recyclability. Anticipated applications include transportation, construction and industrial products.
