Here's a 'New' Old Name in Long-Fiber Compounds.
MTI's ThermoStran materials are produced in a continuous melt pultrusion process. It uses a patented counterflow die design in which melt is pumped in a direction opposite to that of fiber movement, thereby inducing shear to lower the resin viscosity and enhance fiber wet-out. (The process is available for licensing.) MTI produces pellets from 0.3 to 2 in. long with rovings of glass, carbon, aramid, or stainless steel and matrix resins of PP, nylon, polycarbonate, TPU, PPA, PET, PPS, PEI, PES, or PEEK. A recent development allows the company to produce compounds with a lower-cost textile grade of carbon fiber (48K tow) instead of aerospace grade (12K tow). Carbon fibers are, used in both structural compounds and conductive long-fiber concentrates for EMI/RFI shielding and ESD protection.
Montsinger Technologies also produces continuous reels of thermoplastic prepreg tape and makes custom profile shapes.
