Chopped fiber is used in compression and injection molding compounds to produce parts as varied as machine parts, gears and chemical valves. The finished products exhibit high strength and modulus, excellent fatigue and creep resistance, low thermal expansion, electrical and thermal conductivity, excellent friction and wear resistance, and low shrinkage.
