PEBA and glass fiber: a flexible, structural and colorable polyamide

After years of experience with PEBA based products reinforced carbon fiber, Xenia Materials introduces in the market a new family of compounds PEBA reinforced glass fiber: XEGLASS 17.

PEBA is a flexible polyamide, plasticizer free, which distinguishes itself by outstanding dynamic features able to damp vibrations and noise, even at high frequencies. This low friction polymeric base is characterized by high creep resistance, low density, excellent flexibility, high energy return and impact strength over a wide temperature range. 

The glass fiber reinforcement allows the achievement of mechanical features, much greater than the ones of the pure polymer. The glass fiber emphasizes the high chemical resistance and the good impact strength at low temperatures. Furthermore, XEGLASS 17 composites have low hygroscopic absorption and dimensional stability, they are colorable and they are available also in bio-compatible grades. 

By combining the outstanding aesthetic quality and the easy processability, XEGLASS 17 grades meet the requirements of sport, consumer and industrial goods sectors. 

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.
