Liquid crystal polymer LCP resin Introduce
Liquid crystal polymer (LCP) is a family of halogen-free, high-performance polymers that provide high-temperature performance in eco-friendly thin-wall applications with exceptionally precise and stable dimensions.
Besides possessing a mechanical strength in an entirely different class, LCP has a unique attribute in that the thinner the product becomes, the greater the mechanical strength. Moreover, it has a linear expansion coefficient close to that of metal. In addition, despite its high elastic modulus, another trait is that LCP possesses superion vibration absorbing properties.
As an engineering plastic that transcends the common wisdom of traditional engineering plastics and approaches steel, LCP can be said to be the epitome of next-generation advanced engineering plastics. Making full use of its mechanical properties in AV and OA equipment components, its vibration-absorbing characteristics in application such as CD pickups in IT and audio equipment, and its solder heat resistance in SMT components, application development is proceeding rapidly.
Liquid crystal polymer LCP resin Properties
· Service temperature up to 240ºC, short term up to 340ºC
· Very close tolerances possible (to tolerance class T6)
· Very low heat of fusion (short cycle times possible)
· Flash-free injection molding
· Very high tensile strength (to 200 MPa) and tensile modulus (to 30,000 MPa)
· Very low coefficient of thermal expansion comparable with that of steel and ceramics
· Inherently flame-resistant (UL 94 V-0, some grades with 5 VA)
· Halogen-free without additives
· Very good resistance to chemicals and oxidation
These highly crystalline, thermotropic (melt-orienting) thermoplastics are distinguished from semicrystalline plastics by their special molecular structure, which consists of rigid, rod-like macromolecules that are ordered in the melt phase to form liquid crystal structures.
Liquid crystal polymer LCP resin Grades
· Glass fiber reinforced
· Carbon fiber reinforced
· Fiber/filler modified

· Injection molding
LCPs have replaced stainless steel in medical applications with several grades compliant with USP Class VI guidelines and ISO 10993. They are resistant to gamma radiation, steam autoclaving and most chemical sterilization methods.
