LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer): Injection Molding Resin
Liquid Crystal Polymer
Springboard utilizes LCP (liquid crystal polymer), an exotic injection molding resin, to produce a wide range of precision parts and components for our customers. LCP exhibits many highly desirable properties, including:
- High mechanical strength at high temperatures
- Inherently flame retardant
- Good weatherability
- Extreme chemical resistance
- Resistant to stress cracking
LCP is sold under a variety of names you are likely already familiar with, such as Kevlar, Vectra and Zenite.
