New Carbon Progress from BASF and SGL
SGL and BASF have successfully completed a joint project to enhance the cost-effectiveness of manufacturing carbon fiber/thermoplastic composites in injection procedures – specifically thermoplastic resin transfer and reaction injection molding. The resulting composite is based on a reactive polyamide system and compatible with carbon fibers. A carbon-fiber surfacing agent – or sizing – specially designed for the matrix system, as well as tailored thermoplastic reactive systems means that lightweight structural components for the automotive industry can now be manufactured quickly and easily.
