Market adoption and future impact:

The versatility of LMPAEK™ polymers also opens up new avenues for design and manufacturing, particularly UDT-Unidirectional tape with continuous carbon fiber. When delivered in UDT form, these polymers can be easily machined into complex shapes and complex geometrics-enabling innovative designs that are difficult to achieve with traditional materials and manufacturing methods.

LMPAEK polymer

In addition, LMPAEK™ polymers can be processed using technologies such as additive manufacturing, making them compatible with existing manufacturing processes.

Several leading aerospace companies have begun incorporating LMPAEK™ polymers UDTs, films, filaments and compounds into their aircraft and spacecraft designs. These polymers are used in applications such as structural components, interior panels and even critical engine components. The adoption of LMPAEK™ polymers not only helps reduce weight and improve fuel efficiency, but also enhances the ability to process tape faster, obtain quality parts, and reduce costs.CFRTP
