Thermylene® represents a family of specialty chemically coupled glass reinforced polypropylenes (PP). Thermylene® improves the ability of molded parts to resist distortion under load and provides a pronounced improvement in elevated-temperature performance.
The enhanced adhesion between the glass fiber reinforcement and the polypropylene matrix results in a material that exhibits the following characteristics:
- Superior Knit Line Strength and Stiffness
- Improved Elevated Temperature Performance
- Higher Creep Resistance
- Enhanced Toughness
- Excellent Chemical Resistance
- Enhanced Tensile Strength (nearly twice that of non-chemically coupled polymers)
