Xenia Thermoplastic Specialties Introduces New Range of Supertough Carbon Fiber Composites September 19 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, September 19, 2022

Xenia Materials, a global leader in thermoplastic specialties, has introduced XECARB ST, a new family of supertough carbon fiber composites custom-engineered to close a performance gap in the market and provide superior impact strength performance. XECARB ST thermoplastic composites are based on selected polyamide matrix materials – PA66, PA6, PA11, PA12, PA6.10, PA6.12 and PA4.10 – addressing different mechanical, thermal and physical requirements.
“There is a growing demand for lightweight composites in various new markets, such as sustainable mobility and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), where we have identified a need for higher impact resistance than previously offered by carbon fiber reinforced composites,” says Cristian Zanchetta, Technical Manager for R&D at Xenia Materials. “Our new XECARB ST family meets these challenges while at the same time opening new opportunities for innovative applications in existing market segments, such as sports equipment, appliances, supercars and even additive manufacturing.”
XECARB ST builds on the proven mechanical strengths of Xenia’s successful XECARB range, but shows significantly higher notched impact resistance, low temperature ductility and tensile elongation at break. With slightly lower density, the new carbon fiber composite technology offers these unmatched advantages together with further lightweighting possibilities.
