New Production Processes  
   

Base Materials

EF and LFT mainly consist of the same materials, generally polypropylene and glass fibres. Basically however, it is also possible to process other fibres (carbon or aramide) and matrices (PET, PBT, PA and ABS).
The LFT moulding compound has relatively modest mechanical values but features excellent design freedom and allows rational production of large-area parts. The unidirectional continuous-filament strips (EF) feature excellent mechanical properties and are able to be inserted three-dimensionally in line with the force characteristic and the component geometry. The LFT component can thus be reinforced locally or in a framework structure in targeted manner with the EF intermediate layers.
