Discover new ways to produce thermoplastic composite components.

Progano’s composite material is a highly developed combination of continuous glass fibers and polypropylene. It enables design engineers to reduce the weight of components and increase the strength and production efficiency. Applications can be found in the automotive, construction and leisure industries as well as many other technical markets.

Progano’s Lightweight Composite Sheet

Lighter

Progano components weigh up to 35% less. It’s not as dense as aluminum and Progano components can be created using less material.

Stronger

Progano is at least 50% stronger than aluminum alloys of similar proportion and performs exceptionally well in crash tests.

Faster

Reduced manufacturing durations and costs through the direct integration of multiple elements in a single component construction process.
