Materials Spotlight

We’re already shifting what’s possible with KyronMax®

Learn more about KyronMAX®

Our range of carbon fiber-based technologies includes the world’s strongest injection moldable product line of structural thermoplastic materials, KyronMAX®.

KyronMAX® compounds exhibit much higher mechanical strength than conventional glass and carbon filled systems, at the same fiber percentage loadings. The increased mechanical performance, allows the use of lower filler loadings, increasing the material’s strain, which allows molded parts to yield and not fracture.

CASE STUDY

Reducing costs and emissions through material expertise

A complex challenge that required a simplified solution.

Our experts produced a self-lubricating plastic solution that not only delivered to our customer’s needs, but also resulted in a lighter plane with a lower risk of failure and reduced maintenance requirements. This in turn led to better fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions, which helped create a more sustainable aircraft.

CASE STUDY

Increased part endurance, decreased maintenance costs

Re-imagining existing parts using more durable, self-lubricating plastic

Working with the OEM, we identified a fatigue-resistant material that became an Aerospace industry standard. An extensive material selection process included wear and mechanical testing, fluid susceptibility and temperature endurance; plus a number of qualification steps to ensure the new material met every requirement.
