What Is Long Fiber Injection?

October 26, 2015

Long Fiber Technology (LFI) is a process of Structural Reaction Injection Molding (SRIM) that only involves one step. This process is widely regarded as superior to the traditional two-step SRIM process because it assists in making the processes more automatic. Traditional Reaction Injection Molding requires an expert to manually place preform or mat into the tool before pouring or injecting polyurethane. At Romeo RIM, we are pleased to provide our clients with LFI and help them automate the polyurethane SRIM process without sacrificing quality.

With LFI, low cost fiberglass rovings are used, and the scrap materials that require trimming from parts made with older technology are greatly reduced. The LFI process involves the use of a robot that is programmed to carry out the process.

Long Fiber Injection has countless benefits to business owners, including: reduced material cost by reducing scrap from weight, increased durability, high stiffness, and lower tool costs. At Romeo RIM Inc. we know that our clients want to minimize operational costs in an effort to maximize their profit margins. We also know that our clients are not willing to sacrifice quality for price. You can rest assured knowing that the LFI process will create parts like those created though traditional RIM processes, but with less waste and greater durability.

At Romeo RIM, we pride ourselves in being the leaders in the RIM industry. With more than 30 years of experience as a leader in composite solutions, we have been on the cutting edge of innovation, evolving in our services as quickly as technologies change. Whether your business is in the transportation, heavy truck, agriculture, construction, spa, or rail car industry, we are confident that you will be pleased with the parts that are made through the Long Fiber Technology process. If you are interested in learning more about the LFI process and the ways it can improve your business’s bottom line while providing you with high quality parts, contact us today!
