3M™ Nextel™ Chopped Fiber 720 is made from 3M™ Nextel™ Fibers that are well-suited for use in composite applications – as a filler or as a reinforcement – to improve mechanical and thermal properties. The fibers are commonly chopped to 1/8", 1/4" and 1/2" lengths but custom lengths are also available upon request.
3M™ Nextel™ Chopped Fiber 720 is designed for use in a number of composite applications including Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC), Metal Matrix Composite (MMC) and Polymer matrix Composite (PMC) applications. Nextel chopped fiber 720 makes an excellent filler that can serve as a reinforcement to improve mechanical and thermal properties. In a mechanical part, this product can help improve interlaminar shear strength; In turn, this helps improve the mechanical integrity and longevity of a finished part in rigorous, real-world applications – including intense heat and stress. Additionally, Nextel chopped fiber 720 provides very high creep resistance. If you are thinking about making a panel that will experience high temperatures and thermal cycling, then Nextel chopped fiber 720 would be an excellent choice. Nextel chopped fiber 720 is part of an extensive line of 3M™ Nextel™ Ceramic Textiles and Composites that provide innovative solutions in industries from aerospace to petroleum refining to metal processing. The outstanding thermal protection provided by Nextel fabrics, tapes and sleevings allows engineers and manufacturers to handle extremely high temperature applications.
