IDES-The Plastics Web: Search of the Week

Liquid crystal polymers (LCP) are capable of forming regions of highly ordered structures while in the liquid phase. However, the degree of order is somewhat less than that of a regular solid crystal. Typically LCPs have outstanding mechanical properties at high temperatures, excellent chemical resistance, inherent flame retardancy, and good weatherability. Liquid crystal polymers come in a variety of forms from sinterable high temperature to injection moldable compounds.
