The Right Stuff
Continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic materials fill a performance void between that of conventional injection molded materials and that of high-performance, thermoset advanced composite materials. American Matrix’s products provide the strength and stiffness of advanced composites but also offer toughness, corrosion resistance, and high-temperature capabilities.
Add to this the low-cost manufacturing attributes of thermoplastics and you have a cost benefit unmatched by any other product. The unique properties and lower processing cost of thermoplastics make American Matrix’s products ideal also for metal replacement applications.
