ZOLTEK’s chopped fiber is 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 high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios. Our chopped fibers have a high bulk density value, which allows for cleaner and more consistent flow rates. They also distribute easily during compounding, thereby improving process and product performance. Our chopped fibers are available in a pellet, flake, or stick form.
