The mechanical properties and stability of cellulose-fiber-reinforced polyamide-6 can be improved by carefully controlling processing properties, employing a lubricant, and using high-lignin-content fibers.
Novel glass-fiber-reinforced compound solutions enable high adhesion between metal and plastic, improved mechanical properties, superior chemical resistance, and desirable aesthetics for consumer electronics.
