Melt Films for Fiber Bonding

Low viscosity, high performance

Producing a thermoplastic hybrid composite film from natural fibers such as flax, hemp, wool, glass or carbon fiber is easy and safe with our low-viscosity melting PP film.

Our polypropylene resin high MFR of up to 150 enables reliable wetting and flow around each fiber. This enables calculable values for further thermoplastic processing to be achieved. The easy handling of the film from roll to roll or roll to sheet allows clean and reproducible production. In addition, the use of polypropylene ensures the solution is recyclable.

Applications

  • Thermal melt bonding to fibers of all types in automotive applications

  • Hybrid production of thermoplastic semi-finished products for lightweight construction in the building industry

Key attributes

  • Light, uniform and low viscosity melting
  • High degree of efficient impregnation in the semi-finished product – predictable further processing in downstream processes such as thermoforming or injection molding
  • Thickness range from 50µm to 250µm allows a wide variety of applications
  • Recyclability of polypropylene

Specifications

  • Thickness range: 50 – 250μm
  • Width: up to 2,800mm
  • MFR 40 or 150
  • Colors: black or natural
