Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers – How Fiber Lengths and Loading Define the Achievable Properties and Dictate the Manufacturing Techniques
Live Presentation – Wednesday, May 7, 2014 2:00 pm ET
The Webinar will look at the properties of thermoplastic composites. Focusing mainly on carbon-fiber filled composites, we will show how the geometry of the filler, as well as the amount of filler, affects the properties of the finished article. The filler properties also generally determine the available manufacturing techniques that can be used.
We will look at properties that can be obtained using carbon fillers ranging from nanoparticles to continuous fibers and will also discuss how some combinations of filler can provide useful properties. There is no ideal formulation for a carbon-fiber reinforced thermoplastic – the end-use application will dictate the best candidates.
