Asahi Kasei introduces long glass fiber reinforced Polypropylene

20-Feb-13
Asahi Kasei Plastics has announced a new long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene for improved impact performance and 20% cost savings compared to traditional long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene. Thermylene® I provides a proven balance of stiffness and toughness over a broad range of temperatures positioning it to replace metal, long glass and many other engineering resin applications. "Automakers will find Thermylene® I especially appealing as it offers excellent mechanical and cost performance compared to traditional long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene," said Ramesh Iyer , vice president of commercial operations at Asahi Kasei Plastics. "Applications that currently use long glass polypropylene will benefit from a cost savings and improved impact resistance, knit line strength, and better flow," said Iyer. "Thermylene® I also provides high strength and stiffness at elevated temperatures, isotropic mechanical and dimensional properties and improved fatigue and creep resistance." Key automotive applications include front-end modules, instrument panel retainers, battery trays, luggage racks and accelerator brake clutch modules. It is also ideal for a wide variety of other structural, functional and appearance parts as the glass content can be tailored to the specification for best performance. Key non-automotive applications include water filtration reverse osmosis units and office furniture.
