New composites family of lightweight compounds developed with Arkema
Xenia (Mussolente / Italy; www.xeniamaterials.com), in partnership with chemical producer Arkema (Colombes / France; www.arkema.com), has developed “XECARB SL”, a new family of carbon-filled, lightweight structural compounds that can be used in drones, UAVs and cobot industries, as well as in the sports sector.

With a flexural modulus reaching 11000 MPa and a density equal to 1,00g/cm3, the pioneer grade of XECARB SL was designed using Arkema’s “Rilsan” polyamide 11, a polymer obtained from renewable sources and characterised by toughness at low temperatures and high resistance to stress cracking (see Plasteurope.com of 23.03.2018 and 18.03.2016).

Xenia said XECARB SL retains a high ratio between tensile strength at break and density, presenting easy processability and dimensional stability, among other things.
