Using glass fiber can create a good balance between specifications and cost of polymer compounds. Thus, it is used as a reinforcing agent in polymers, especially in PP. The ultimate properties of PP reinforced with glass fiber depend on the middle phase stability of the base polymer and fiber. When cohesion between the polymer and the fiber is weak, the fiber glass cannot play the role of a reinforcing agent and the compound loses its properties. In order to optimally couple the glass fiber with the polymer matrix, it is important to use the proper coupling agent.
Padena Polymer’s glass fiber reinforced PP compound addresses this concern by using a high quality coupling agent and a precise compounding process which optimizes the distribution of glass fiber in the polymer matrix.
