New on the North American market, IXEF glass fibre-reinforced compounds demonstrate extreme rigidity, high fluidity, excellent surface finish, very low creep and high dimensional stability that make them competitive with metal alloys.

The polyarylamide material allows a part to be simultaneously very thin, rigid, complex, light and highly resistant to mechanical stress.

Molding IXEF compounds is comparable to standard nylons. Surface treatments such as painting and metallizing are simple to apply and, with no glass fibers on the surface, result in very smooth finishes.
