Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP)

Features:

  • Service temperature up to 240°C, short term up to 340°C
  • Very close tolerances possible (to tolerance class T6)
  • Very low heat of fusion (short cycle times possible)
  • Flash-free injection molding
  • Very high tensile strength (to 200 MPa) and tensile modulus (to 30,000 MPa)
  • Very low coefficient of thermal expansion comparable with that of steel and ceramics
  • Inherently flame-resistant (UL 94 V-0, some grades with 5 VA)
  • Halogen-free without additives
  • Very good resistance to chemicals and oxidation

We offer various type of LCP as follows:

  • Standard grade LCP
  • Coating grade LCP
  • Cookware boiling grade LCP

Applications:

  • Automotive (glow plug connectors, sensors, lamp house)
  • Electrical and electronics (connectors, coil bobbins, components for cell phone, smart card reader, lamp sockets, reflector)
  • Consumer goods (Baking pans and trays, base plate for watches, pans for raclette grails, component for coffee machine and steamers)
  • Health care (Mechanically stressed parts in diagnostic and drug delivery system, barrier films in pharmaceutical packaging)
