Features & Benefits
Stronger than steel. Lighter than aluminum. Zero waste.
KyronMAX® is a range of new breakthrough high strength thermoplastic composite compounds, specifically designed for rapid, complex high-spec injection molding.
Easily processed, KyronMAX® can be molded using the same equipment and tooling as standard for unfilled resins, while compounds can be customized to meet application requirements. Crucially, where traditional materials struggle, KyronMAX® injection moldable materials retain high strength in complex part geometries, making them stronger, lighter and longer lasting (tougher) than other thermoplastic composite and metal parts.
A new standard in materials engineering
Strongest moldable polymers available for metal replacement applications.
The world’s strongest injection moldable product line of structural thermoplastic materials using advanced carbon fiber technology adds new formulas reaching 60,000 psi tensile strength.

Tensile Strength Comparison Using the Same Fiber Loading
KyronMAX compounds exhibit much higher mechanical strength, than conventional glass and carbon filled systems, at the same fiber percentage loadings. The increased mechanical performance, allows the use of lower filler loadings, increasing the material’s strain, which allows the part to yield and not fracture.
KyronMAX® vs Conventional LFT Structural Compounds Stiffness at Temperature
This standard Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) summary compares material stiffness over an elevated temperature range. As displayed, conventional glass and carbon filled Nylon compounds lose mechanical performance very quickly when exposed to even low elevated temperatures. In comparison, the KyronMAX products demonstrate excellent property retention even in the harshest of temperature regions.
