The increasing use of plastics instead of metals pushed Ascend towards finding alternative materials with equivalent characteristics of stiffness and strength.
Among the principal advantages of these products, compared to metals, there are the relative simplicity of machining and processing advantages, the reduced weight of the product, ease of availability of raw materials with a consequent lesser environmental impact.
Excellent dimensional stability
High mechanical performance
Excellent surface finishing
High load value at break
Excellent electrical conductivity
