Innovative Polypropylene Compounds for Enabling Applications
Thermylene® represents Asahi Kasei's family of award winning chemically coupled glass reinforced polypropylenes (PP). When chemical coupling technology is applied to glass fiber reinforced polypropylene, significant improvements are seen across a number of key physical attributes.The enhanced compound properties yield an attractive balance of cost and performance compared to conventional engineering thermoplastics.
What Is Glass-Reinforced Polypropylene?
Glass fiber (GF) is the most widely used reinforcement in polypropylene (PP)-based composites as it provides a valuable balance between costs and properties. Glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene compounds deliver improved strength, structural rigidity and dimensional stability in applications.
The key performance in glass-reinforced polypropylene compounds is delivered by the efficacy of formulation design and polymer fiber interphase. Thermylene® products provide increased durability, strength and stiffness for critical structural components. Glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene compounds have significantly improved flexural modulus and tensile strength because of superior design and state-of-the-art production technologies applied by Asahi Kasei.
