Glass fibre mat reinforced thermoplastics (GMT) are now able to be designed for light weight applications with lower than ever before wall thicknesses and high surface finish. This is made possible as result of new material developments using the Azdel chopped fiber technology. Highly isotropic in-plane material properties are now attainable over very long material flow trajectories in combination with the thinnest wall sections. This breakthrough has been enabled by an economical method to maximise the macroscopic fibre-fibre interaction, without loss of mechanical, flow and other performance properties. Further, the fiber content and part weight distribution capability are of the highest quality available, further ensuring that molders and OEMs may design reliably at the lowest part weight.
