A super light structural compounds family with flexural modulus reaching 11000 MPa

XECARB SL composites are the newest Xenia Materials family of carbon filled, super light structural compounds developed in partnership with Arkema.

With a flexural modulus reaching 11000 MPa and a density equal to 1,00 g/cm3, the pioneer grade of this family was designed using Rilsan PA 11. This polymer is obtained from renewable sources and is characterized by an outstanding toughness at low temperatures and good resistance to stress cracking.

These new compounds stand out for their high ratio between tensile strength at break and density, presenting an easy processability together with an excellent dimensional stability and great resistance to weather, UV rays and ageing. XECARB 20-C15-SL grade reaches tensile elongation at break over 4% thanks to the intrinsic flexibility of the base polymer.

The XECARB SL composites family embodies the perfect solution for special applications in drones, UAV’s and cobot industries, as well as for the most outstanding applications in the sport system sector.

Xenia Materials is an Italian compounding company, specialized in engineering and production of innovative polymer-based materials for 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.
