Liquid crystalline polymers receive a great deal of attention for their impact on polymer structure and morphology understanding and their practical applications.
Practical benefits of LPCs use are numerous:

A small addition (5%) reduces blend viscosity they are excellent processing aids LCPs can be blended with common thermoplasts using the existing process technology in situ composites produced in simple process small additions act as a reinforcing phase ultra-high moduli, characteristic for high performance materials, are due to a high degree of crystallinity and molecular orientation materials of high mechanical stiffness result LCP particles elongate into fibrils, oriented in machine direction LCPs lower polymer melting temperature that allows to process polymers whose high processing temperature represents severe restriction.
The above mentioned and other important phenomena are discussed and illustrated by numerous examples in this book.
