Hybrid Thermoplastic Composites come in PP and ETPU.

Combining long glass fiber and long carbon fiber together in single, ready-to-mold pellet, Complet® Hybrid Composites are available in polypropylene and engineered thermoplastic polyurethane. Single pellet solution for combining long glass and carbon fiber provides optimized fiber dispersion, which minimizes performance reductions due to fiber attrition during processing. In addition to...

Interchangeable Motorboat Propeller Blades Made from Complet MT Long Glass Fiber Reinforced Composite Propels Piranha's Success

WINONA, MINN., USAÂ- – With repair costs from motorboat propellers striking submersed objects running up to several thousand dollars for complete lower unit rebuilds, Brad Stahl knew there had to be a better solution. His intuition led him to start Piranha Propellers of Jackson, Calif., which manufactures and sells replacement propellers featuring interchangeable blades made from long...

Composite Pellet acts as drop-in die-cast magnesium substitute.

ComplÃ-©t® LFT duplicates mechanical and electrical properties of magnesium in injection molding or extrusion materials that offer up to 40% reductions in weight. Matching mechanical performance of pressure die-cast magnesium and aluminum with tensile modulus up to 42,000 MPa, pellets offer surface resistivity down to 0.2 Ω/sq and EMI shielding capabilities from 60–80 dB....
