Fibremod for flexible designs with reduced weight and cost

Fibremod products also support energy efficiency in production by reducing process temperatures and energy requirements compared with alternative solutions such as polyamide (PA). © Borealis.

Borealis is launching its Fibremod technology into the North American automotive market. The Fibremod family of carbon and glass fibre-reinforced polypropylene (PP) products from Borealis enables automotive manufacturers to achieve weight-saving and process cost-saving targets.

In turn, replacing engineering plastics and metal parts with energy-efficient PP grades leads to improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. The customised solutions bring lighter weight, extra strength, and greater impact performance across applications ranging from front end and tailgate modules to instrument panels and centerconsole carriers.

Products in the Fibremod family are a suitable material substitute for metal, and engineered plastics, delivering unmatched design flexibility. Short-glass, long-glass and carbon fibre formulations are available, with customisable fibre content ratios, to enable manufacturers to balance strength, weight and cost according to specific design needs.
