The PAPC compounds can be molded in different processes like 3D Printing, Injection molding and Extrusion. These PAPC compounds have been micro molded successfully where other natural fiber thermoplastic compositions have failed due to high shear sensitivity and process temperature >210C. Secondary processes like machining, metal plating and compression molding have been qualified with PAPC.
