PX35 Chopped Carbon Fiber

Designed with cleaner and more consistent flow rates in mind, ZOLTEK’s chopped fiber is produced to have a high bulk density value. Commonly compounded with general engineering thermoplastics (e.g., PC, Nylon, etc.) and high-temperature thermoplastic resins (e.g, PEEK, PEI, etc.), the resulting composite offers industry-leading high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios.
