Glass fibers unidirectionally embedded in a polypropylene matrix – two materials with great properties, unbeatable together.
As UD tape, it has been trimmed by thermoplastics experts for efficiency and suitability for large-scale production and made fit for the mass market. With a glass fiber content of 72%, providing lightweight strength greater than aluminum.
If the high strength of the unidirectionally embedded glass fibers is exploited in the design and supported by the GF-UD 90° component, a wide range of applications can be achieved in which weight and cost reductions compared with other materials such as aluminum become a reality.
proUD 0° – glass fiber in machine direction
proUD 90° – glass fiber transverse to the machine direction
proUD X – combination of machine and transverse direction
All three proUD variants on rolls with max. 2,200 running meters – efficient and simply strong!
