Liquid crystal polymers are high-melting-point thermoplastic materials. LCP exhibits natural hydrophobic properties that limit moisture absorption. Another natural trait of LCP is its ability to withstand significant doses of radiation without degradation of physical properties. In terms of chip packaging and of electronic components, the LCP materials exhibit low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) values. Its major uses are as electrical and electronic housings because of its high temperature and electrical resistance.
