Vectra® B 30% Reinforced Glass Fibre Rod

The Vectra® B 30% Reinforced Glass Fibre Rods are part of our extensive range of rods and fasteners. With 18 variations available, these rods are made from a liquid crystal polymer (LCP) thermoplastic reinforced with 30% glass fiber for enhanced mechanical properties. With their combination of high strength, rigidity and thermal and chemical resistance, these rods are suitable for use in mechanical and electrical engineering applications. The dimensional stability and low moisture absorption of LCP also allows for precision parts to be manufactured.
