PP materials and compounds
PP (unfilled polypropylene)
Polypropylene (PP) is a universal plastic which can be used with a lot of standardised applications. In order to meet needed requirements additives, stabilisers and fillers can be added into standard PP.
PP compounds with glass fibres
Reinforcements/Fillers in the form of glass fibres to PP compounds give better stiffness, higher mechanical toughness and better heat resistance and are more aesthetically pleasing. Stiffness, toughness, firmness and creep strength in the component are increased by reinforcing the plastic matrix with glass fibres. We can offer PP compounds based on homopolymers and copolymers in varying degrees of GF filling.
PP Compounds with talc / chalk
Talc is added to the base PP improves the stiffness, dimensional stability, heat resistance and creep behaviour. Filling PP compound with chalk provides about a small improvement in the stiffness while impact toughness values remain constant.
