THERMOCOMP compounds enhance nearly any base resin for stiffness, heat resistance, dimensional tolerances - even specific gravity or processing parameters.
Thermocomp compounds based on high temperature resins enhance properties even in demanding high heat and chemical environments.
BROAD RANGE OF RESINS Available in more than 25 different base resins, including ULTEM polyetherimide (PEI) resin, polyetheretherketone (PEEK), various polyamides (PA), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS), and melt processible fluoropolymers. A number of reinforcing additives are used in Thermocomp compounds, including glass fiber, carbon fiber, glass beads and various minerals.
CLOSELY-TUNED ENGINEERING ATTRIBUTES Can be formulated to meet specific engineering attributes, including strength, stiffness, specific gravity for weight management or solid feel, heat resistance, chemical resistance, flow properties, and dimensional stability. Can be used in demanding high temperature and chemical environments.
FLAME RETARDANCY Can be compounded for flame retardancy (FR), including non-halogenated FR compounds.
COLORABILITY Available in a wide range of opaque colors for improved aesthetics.
