Xycomp® DLFTM

High performance thermoplastic composite
Xycomp® DLFTM is a lightweight thermoplastic composite developed to replace complex-shape metal components for a variety of industries. With outstanding fatigue, vibration and impact resistance, it provides up to 35% weight savings to help reduce emission, offers fuel savings while providing exceptional performance.
Xycomp® DLFTM is produced from aerospace-grade, carbon fiber reinforced, unidirectional prepreg tape which is chopped into flakes. This results in high fiber content (70% by weight), longer fibers (0.5 in./13 mm or greater), and a high degree of material control. Flakes are matched-die compression molded in a proprietary process called ProFusion®, enabling the production of 3-D shapes with variable wall thickness and molded-in features such as fasteners, inserts, and ribs. The benefits of this molding technique include the consolidation of complex assemblies into fewer parts, and the optimization of raw material required per component (buy-to-fly ratio). In addition to these properties, Xycomp® DLFTM is resistant to all common aerospace fluids.

Xycomp® DLFTM components pass both FST (flame, smoke, toxicity) standards and the 15-minute burn-through requirement, making them ideal for use in aircraft interiors, engines, nacelles, or aerostructures. Through investment in extensive technical capabilities, Greene Tweed partners with customers from concept and design analysis, through certification, to production. Xycomp® DLFTM components are manufactured with nearly zero waste and are fully recyclable at the end of their service life.
