Xenia launches two families of carbon fiber and hybrid carbon/glass fiber reinforced polyamide compounds

PA 4.6 is a high-performance polyamide known for its unmatched performance and value for demanding applications in which superior heat resistance, design stiffness, wear & friction and process flow qualities are required.

Thanks to the application of structural reinforcements the new grades XECARB 37 and XEBRID 37 exhibit high tensile modulus, tensile strength at break up to 275 MPa, improved HDT, good fatigue resistance, higher dimensional stability and better surface hardness.

Furthermore, the use of carbon fibers within the XECARB 37-family provides improved electrical properties and better resistance to UV and chemical agents like oils and hydrocarbon.

With the development of the new grades XEBRID 37, hybrid carbon/glass reinforced compounds, the impact properties and the toughness have improved, always maintaining a high crystallinity level and a great flow behaviour, typical for the polymer’s aliphatic molecular structure.

XECARB 37 and XEBRID 37 are designed specifically for the industrial sector and they find use in a wide range of structural and conductive applications characterised by high operating temperature resistance, together with good chemical resistance and low friction.

Xenia is an Italian compounding company, specialized in engineering and production of innovative polymer based materials for the most advanced and challenging industries.

The company, located in Vicenza, Italy incorporates an engineering team, which helps customers to develop high-tech solutions with a research and development department dedicated to product innovation.
