Engineering plastics

Compounds are upgraded by addition of glass fibres, minerals or other materials thermoplastic polymers, used due to their properties for manufacturing of engineering components.
These materials offer good mechanical properties, good chemical resistance, low abrasion and deterioration. Due to low density and easy processing they do substitute the traditional materials for example metal.

Wide range of application they found for processing components for automotive, electrical, electronics industry as well as in building industry and many other areas.

PP Compounds

Polypropylene Compounds

Properties:
Polypropylene – Homopolymers and Copolymers, reinforced with minerals, EPDM, glass fibres and glass beads.
New in our portfolio are PP LGF Compounds, they are produced in specific engineering process and content long fibres up to 50 %. These products fulfil high mechanical requirements also during elevated temperature. They are used as equivalent to light metals, thermosets and cost-intensive engineering plastics.
We also offer materials modified with additives, they can be adjusted to customer requirements.

Specification:
Filled with:
– Mineral up to 40%
– Glass fibres up to 50 %
– EPDM up to 30 %
UV and thermoresistant, good flame resistance
High tensile strength and stiffness
Alkali-resistance

Fields of application:
Automotive and electrical industry, white goods, building industry

TPE Compounds

Thermoplastic elastomer compounds

Properties:
