Long Fiber Composites – Obstacles and Opportunities


The balance between cost, structural integrity, and light-weighting can be tricky to navigate. To achieve this balance, long and short fiber composite molding compounds can be used to replace machined metal, filament winding, laminates, prepreg, and other processes. Depending on the design or application, the use of thermoset or thermoplastic composite materials may be used in conjunction with a glass or carbon fiber reinforcement. In many cases, the use of a hand layup or filament winding process is unnecessary to get desired structural properties. In this paper, case studies will highlight how chopped composite materials can achieve ideal mechanical strength while maintaining a light weight and lower cost impact, reducing cycle times and machining waste.
