Progano Organo sheets

Profol's strong lightweight composites

Innovative technology “Made in Germany”: The lightweight construction of progano is a highly developed composite made of glass fibers and polypropylene. Progano opens up new ways to manufacture thermoplastic composite components. Whether in the automotive, construction or leisure industries, progano enables engineers to reduce component weight, increase strength and make products more efficient. Heat formable and available in large quantities, progano sets new standards in all areas of lightweight construction where aluminum or steel components need to be replaced.

Lighter

Progano saves up to 35% weight compared to aluminum and 75% compared to steel. It has a lower density than aluminum and components can be designed with lower material usage.

Stronger

Progano is up to 50% stronger than aluminum alloys and has excellent performance in crash tests.

Faster

Process cost and time savings through direct integration of several functional elements into just one process step of component manufacture.

Possible applications

Progano can be used in almost any thermoplastic application that replaces aluminum or steel components.
