Borealis introduces Fibremod and Daplen solutions for future automotive lightweight design.
Borealis introduces Fibremod and Daplen solutions for future automotive lightweight design.

Borealis and Borouge announce the launch of several new polypropylene (PP) compounds in the Daplen family of PP thermoplastic olefin (TPO) compounds, and the Fibremod range of PP fiber reinforced compounds.

These compounds will be introduced at the International Plastics in Automotive Engineering conference, held by VDI in Mannheim, Germany from March 29-30.

"As we explore the new frontier of electric vehicles together with leading OEMs and their Tier 1 partners, we are committed to developing value-creating polyolefins that enable our customers to think about the material science of cars in a different way," said Nicholas Kolesch, Head of Automotive Marketing at Borealis. "But even more, we can see the potential for fundamentally rethinking automotive design, thanks to the wealth of PP-based solutions available today, and on the immediate horizon."

The proprietary Fibremod long glass fiber reinforced polypropylene (LGFPP) technology is known for its superior fiber impregnation and flexibility in allowing for use of various polypropylene matrices, and the production of grades in customized colors.

With the commercial launch of LGF Fibremod GB416LF with 40% filler content, Borealis is further differentiating its product offer by offering a new, lighter weight solution for a full polyolefin tailgate module as a lower-density replacement solution for conventional metal or engineering polymers.

As a high-flow material, Fibremod GB416LF fulfills both emission requirements and mechanical performance criteria. With high quality surface aesthetics, the grade can be used for visible parts. Its sustainability is enhanced not only by its lighter weight, but by eliminating the need for one or more paint layers, or additional aesthetic parts.

Fibremod GD577SF, a new short glass fiber (SGF) grade with 50% filler, is another extension of the Fibremod portfolio. In addition to its outstanding mechanical performance – even at higher temperatures – the grade also offers pleasing surface qualities for visible structural parts.

As a potential replacement solution for demanding metal and polyamide (PA) applications, GD577SF is suited for a diverse range of exterior, interior and UTB applications, including full plastic front end modules, clutch and gas pedals, external mirror structures, and more.

As a new material generation designed to serve as a "drop-in" solution, the highly pure Daplen EE001AI boasts strong mechanical properties and minimal filler content. With the similar shrinkage characteristics typical of grades with higher filler content (such as PP-T15), the new Daplen EE001AIcan be used in existing tool geometries. It maintains the proven Daplen characteristics of processability and robustness in large-scale series production.

While it is a lightweight grade, it certainly pulls its weight when it comes to surface aesthetics, and can be used to achieve class-A surfaces free of tiger stripes and any other visible flaws typically affecting injection molded parts. It is highly suitable for a wide range of injection configurations and tool layouts.
