Generally, most of the products are compounded with 5% or 10% glass fiber, but Thermylene can be adjusted in 1% increments, allowing you to select the grade that best suits your needs. In addition, even within the same grade with the same glass fiber content, Thermylene offers a variety of formulations for impact improvement, heat resistance, weather resistance, scratch resistance, low VOC, etc.
Low specific gravity and light weight
Since polypropylene is the resin with the lowest specific gravity, it can achieve weight reduction compared to metals and engineering plastics. If a grade containing 35% glass fiber is used to maintain the same level of strength and rigidity as PA6-GF30% in a part of the same shape, a weight reduction of about 10% can be expected.
It can contain up to 60% glass fiber. So it enables the selection of materials with strength and rigidity suitable for various applications such as mechanical parts of automobiles. Heat-resistant grades are also available to maintain physical properties even in high-temperature environments, making them suitable for internal engine compartment parts.
Properties including high modulus and stiffness make it a viable alternative to metals and engineering plastics. The stiffness of the material helps to support the mirror assembly, thus reducing mirror distortion.
