Material Carbon reinforced PA
Carbon reinforced PA combines stiffness and strength of carbon fibres with the easy processability of termoplastic PA, beside being a very low-weight material.
Danish Name Kulfiberforstærket PA
Products Bicycle frame
Similar materials Carbon fibre
PA
Environmen- tal notes Creation: It is less harmful to the health than thermosetting resins used in other composites materials.

Use: -

Disposal: Possibility to reuse the material, thanks to the thermoplastic matrix.
Additional Info PA fibre reinforced composites are still not very common. Yet, environment concerns and the need of automated production of composite parts, will, in the next years, push the development of thermoplastic matrix composites.
