MatSci50x50  Non-Conductive Materials

A great deal of emphasis is put on increasing the thermal and electrical conductivity while reducing weight. Conversely, we are often asked to design components that require dielectric or radiolucent properties. There are many suitable thermoplastic and thermoset composite materials available in both continuous and chopped fiber.

We routinely utilize e-glass materials for radome and antenna applications. Phenolic-based composites are often used for radio lucent applications. Many of the fabrics and chopped fiber can be molded with PPS or PEEK to provide superior temperature resistance and increased impact strength.




Notable Advantages:

• Low CTE
• Low Dielectric Constants of 2.5 or less can be achieved
• Thermal Insulating Properties
• Excellent Impact Resistance
