XECARB® SL composites. The new super light structural family is born

XECARB® SL composites are the newest Xenia Materials family of Carbon filled, super light structural compounds developed in partnership with Arkema.

With a flexural modulus reaching 11000 MPa and a density equal to 1,00 g/cm3, the pioneer grade of this family was designed using Rilsan® PA 11. This polymer is obtained from renewable sources and is characterized by an outstanding toughness at low temperatures and great resistance to stress cracking.

These new compounds stand out for their high ratio between tensile strength at break and density, presenting an easy processability together with an excellent dimensional stability and great resistance to weather, UV rays and ageing. XECARB® 20-C15-SL grade reaches tensile elongation at break over 4% thanks to the intrinsic flexibility of the base polymer.

The XECARB® SL composites family embodies the perfect solution for special applications in drones, UAV’s and cobot industries, as well as for the most outstanding applications in the sport system sector.

Xenia is an Italian compounding company, specialized in engineering and production of innovative polymer based materials for the most advanced and challenging industries.

The company, located in Vicenza, Italy incorporates an engineering team, which helps customers to develop high-tech solutions with a research and development department dedicated to product innovation.


PEBA and glass fiber. The flexible, structural and colourable polyamide

After years of experience with PEBA based products reinforced Carbon Fiber, Xenia Materials finally introduces in the market a new family of compounds PEBA reinforced Glass Fiber: XEGLASS 17.

SHOW TECHNICAL DATA SHEET

PEBA is a flexible polyamide, plasticiser free, which distinguishes itself by outstanding dynamic features able to damp vibrations and noise, even at high frequencies. This low friction polymeric base is characterised by high creep resistance, low density, excellent flexibility, high energy return and impact strength over a wide temperature range.

The glass fiber reinforcement allows the achievement of mechanical features, much greater than the ones of the pure polymer. The glass fiber emphasises 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 colourable 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.
