Summary

Table of Contents

Liquid crystal polymers (LCPs) are chemically aromatic co-polyesters. But they differ from the engineering plastics PET and PBT most notably in their molecular structure. They are known for their high temperature resistance, excellent mechanical properties, good solvent resistance and low water absorption compared to other heat-resistant polymers. They have good electrical insulation properties, low flammability and a low coefficient of thermal expansion. LCPs exhibit very low viscosity and high flow to completely fill small and intricate molds, making LCPs the favorite choice for making miniature and ultrathin parts down to 0.1-mm wall thickness with extremely short cycle times. LCPs are used in electrical, automotive, chemical processing, medical, and household applications. They are also used for oven and microwave cookery. The LCPs market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.0% between 2015 and 2020 to reach USD 1.2 billion, by 2020.
