RTP Co. has developed a long-glass-fiber polypropylene concentrate especially suited to automotive applications.
The concentrate contains 60 percent by weight of long glass fibers and other additives so it can be blended with neat PP at the injection press.
The Winona, Minn., firm says RTP199X118012 was designed for simple use in large volume jobs.
RTP claims the concentrate allows processors to achieve performance targets while reducing material costs, improving profits and increasing their competitiveness. It can be used to increase stiffness, impact resistance and long-term durability. Typical end uses could be auto front-end modules and door plates and large profile extrusions.
