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 and equipment
- Aerospace: Meets Flame, Smoke and Toxicity (FST) requirements for use in aircraft interior applications
- Semiconductor: Provides high stiffness and a low coefficient of thermal expansion for use in chip carriers
Vectra TREX 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.
