Xenia Materials Launches Glass Fiber-reinforced PEBA Polymers

Published on 2020-05-19. Edited By : SpecialChem

TAGS:  Thermoplastic Composites    

Xenia Materials has introduced in the market a new family of compounds called 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.

High-strength Polymers for Multiple Applications


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 great 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.
