Lati S.p.A. - High Performance Thermoplastics for Injection Moulding

High Performance Thermoplastics for Injection Moulding

LARPEEK

LARPEEK offers an alternative to design engineers intending to make use of a thermoplastic material for the realisation of parts
where higher performance under extreme working conditions is needed.

The properties of LARPEEK, combined with the ease of processing and machining, can offer significant cost reductions in the realisation of parts traditionally made with other materials such as stainless steel, light alloy, ceramics and glass.

In addition to the unfilled versions, LARPEEK is also available with different levels of glass and / or carbon-fibre reinforcement. There are additional self-lubricating grades and tailor-made grades to meet specific project requirements. It is also worth remembering that LARPEEK can be easily processed by using conventional thermoplastic injection moulding machines and electrically heated moulds. Due to its versatility, LARPEEK can also be processed by extrusion, compression and sintering. It can be used for cable coating, metal-deposition, as a functional additive for PTFE, films and so forth.

Key benefits:

  • High thermal resistance
  • Good mechanical and dielectric properties
  • Excellent tribological behaviour
  • Excellent flammability and low levels of smoke toxicity during combustion
  • Exceptional chemical and hydrolysis resistance
  • Resistance to ionising radiation
  • Resistance to several sterilisation techniques
