Arkema and Xenia to develop carbon fiber reinforced chain polyamides
Updated: 2016-03-18 09:51 Source: Market Report Company share:

Arkema, a France-based chemical manufacturer, and Xenia have recently signed a cooperation agreement for the development of carbon fiber reinforced long chain polyamides, including the famous Pebax thermoplastic elastomer, as per Arkema's press release.

These compounds will find various applications in sports, optical, and electronics, where toughness and lightness are crucial.

Carbon fiber technology enhances the performance of polymers in the search for lightness and strength. This technology allows the production of ultra-thin and lightweight parts while keeping extremely high stiffness and impact resistance.

In collaboration with Xenia, newly developed Pebax grades will have higher rigidity while keeping the universally recognized features of Pebax TPE. These include enduring elasticity and impact resistance even at extremely low temperature, and also outstanding processability through direct injection moulding.
