The Nepol GB303HP long glass fibre-reinforced PP replaces unsaturated polyester glass fibre and is injection moulded by Iveco supplier Plastal, which has been able to integrate more functions into the part than was possible in the thermoset manufacturing solution.
The thermoplastics component provides a 30% weight reduction in the front panel and bumper structure, is fully recyclable, and reduces production time. The Nepol grade’s good impact and stiffness performance and dimensional stability meets the crash performance required for this application, according to Borealis.
“This is the first time polypropylene has been used in such an application and the move towards injection moulded bumper and front panel structures is a significant advance for the industry,” according to Paul Turner, vice president of automotive and appliance applications at Borealis.
