Liquid crystalline (LC) polymers are high-molecular-mass molecules that behave in a way that is halfway between regular liquids and crystalline materials (mesomorphic).Many medical, chemical, electronic, beverage, and food packaging applications can benefit from LCP films and sheets. Compared to traditional barrier resins, they are more impervious to water vapour, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and other gases. Liquid Crystal Polymers are substantially more expensive than normal thermoplastics, yet they have superior mechanical, electrical, and chemical resistance. They're employed in a variety of sectors for extremely demanding applications.
Bulletproof vests, tennis strings, hockey sticks (as a composite), snowboards, tyre reinforcement, jet engine enclosures, brake and transmission friction elements, and gaskets are all examples of ultra-high-strength and lightweight fibres and cables.Because their anisotropic material properties, such as refractive index, birefringence, selective light reflection and transmittance, and colour characteristics, are tunable by temperature, mechanical stress, and electromagnetic radiation and fields, Liquid Crystal Polymers are widely used as functional materials in all kinds of optic and optoelectronic devices. Temperature sensing, data storage, display technology, telecommunication, and a variety of other optic and optoelectronic goods are all important uses.
