AvaSpire® AV-651 CF30 is a 30% carbon fiber reinforced version of AvaSpire® AV-651. This formulation offers some advantages relative to 30% carbon fiber reinforced PEEK which include better dimensional stability and warp resistance during injection molding. The AV-651 CF30 grade offers the highest strength, stiffness, and fatigue resistance of any AV-651-based grade. Furthermore, this resin generally retains most of the desirable ultra-performance attributes of carbon fiber reinforced PEEK. Those attributes include chemical resistance, fatigue resistance, and long term thermal oxidative stability.
The excellent balance of properties of AV-651 CF30 makes this grade well suited for a broad range of applications across a number of industries including healthcare, transportation, electronics, oil and gas, and chemical processing.
 This resin can be easily melt processed by injection molding using standard equipment. The melt processing behavior of AV-651 CF30 is overall very similar to that of 30% CF reinforced PEEK. While the resin can also be extruded, the lower melt flow AV-621 CF30 grade is considered more suited for extrusion applications while offering the same property profile as AV-651 CF30.
