Scholarcy highlights

  • Oriented, free-standing films of a thermotropic liquid-crystalline polymer were prepared using a new processing technique, referred to as “foil-spintrusion”
  • Unidirectional LCP monoliths were evaluated for their mechanical performance
  • It was shown that the LCP monoliths could be useful for applications requiring high specific stiffness, for example as facings for composite sandwich panels
