Additional Information

Liquid crystal polymers (LCPs) are high-performance thermoplastics known for their exceptional dimensional stability and heat resistance. These properties make them ideal for demanding applications requiring precise tolerances and reliable performance in high-temperature environments. LCPs offer significantly lower thermal expansion compared to most other plastics, minimizing dimensional changes with temperature fluctuations.

LCPs exhibit good chemical resistance to various solvents and chemicals, contributing to their use in medical and industrial applications. They are inherently flame retardant, meeting stringent fire safety requirements in diverse industries. However, LCPs can be expensive compared to some other plastics and require specialized processing techniques.
