Many applications require materials with high tensile strengths. At the same time, these materials have to be light – particularly in the case of components subject to a dynamic load. Often low thermal expansion, dimensional accuracy and long-term dimensional stability are required for replacing metals. In many cases, carbon-fibre reinforced LUVOCOM® compounds meet these demands – and they are also electrically conductive. They give the design engineer a chance to deploy lighter and generally more economical injection moulded plastic parts.
