VectraTREX LCP is
designed for thermal forming processes and provides high heat deflection
temperature (HDT) of 245C (473F). Vectra TREX
541 also provides a 20 percent improvement in impact performance vs. standard 40 percent
mineral filled LCP and a higher melt viscosity, up to 3 times greater than
standard 40 percent mineral filled LCP.
Ticona's Vectra TREX 541 is for customers who
extrude sheets and films that can be thermoformed to finished components. It is
useful for applications in several industries:
Medical: For use in sterilizable trays
Flame, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) requirements for use in aircraft interior
Semiconductor: Provides high stiffness and a low coefficient of thermal expansion for use in
541 also extends the application possibilities for the kitchenware and food
industries. Vectra TREX LCP can be used to produce vacuum-formed large-format
sheets or pans that can rapidly heat up and cool down.
In a move that strengthens its 3D design business, Stratasys continued a 15-month buying spree this week by announcing its plan to acquire GrabCAD, a provider of a cloud-based collaboration environment for engineers.
Many diverse markets take advantage of semiconductor IP; so many that no one can recite the entire list without leaving off several. So why do we track all the vertical markets? They all have a unique set of requirements and value attributes differently. One major vertical market segment is automotive.
