BASF/SGL Carbon: Joint Developments

Producer of polyamide and Caprolactam BASF SE in Ludwigshafen, and the SGL Group in Wiesbaden, both Germany, which manufactures carbon fibers, will jointly develop a composite material based on a reactive polyamide system and suitable carbon fibers, serving the cost-effective production of thermoplastic carbon fiber-reinforced composites. This is what the two companies recently announced.

The material system is intended for use in the T-RTM process (Thermoplastic Resin Transfer Molding) as well as the reactive injection molding process, and permits considerably shorter processing cycles than conventional thermosetting RTM. The adjustment of the material system to these faster processing techniques plays a major role for the entry of lightweight and high-strength structural components made of carbon fiber composites into automotive mass production.
