Liquid-crystal polymers (LCPs) represent a new class of materials with unique chemical and physical properties based on unique molecular relationships. Although many macroscopic properties of LCPs are extremely advantageous, the costs associated with production of these materials are high. The blending of a conventional resin with an LCP can produce improvements in cost effectiveness and can yield novel chemical and physical results. The blending of a thermotropic LCP with less expensive nylon 12 has yielded a spectrum of materials exhibiting a wide range of interesting properties.
