Polystrand® tapes for composites

Product range
Polystrand® materials are engineered thermoplastic resins combined with high strength fibers.

Polystrand® materials combine high strength fibers and engineered thermoplastic resins to make Continuous Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics (CFRTP). Polystrand® CFRTP materials are available in rolls of tape, X-ply® (0°/90°) and other multiply configurations which may be post-formed. The use of Polystrand® offers opportunities to reduce weight while maintaining exceptional strength and impact resistance.

Impact and abrasion resistant panels for the rail and trucking industry, selective reinforcement of LFT (Long Fiber Thermoplastic) automotive components, air and sea cargo containers and selected construction applications are a few examples of the markets successfully utilizing Polystrand® materials today.
