Borealis Post Reactor Technologies
Based on the Borealis proprietary Borstar® process technology, a range of post reactor technologies are used to add more product functionalities. These include:
- The Fibremod™ family of engineered short (SGF) and long glass fibre (LGF) compounds is bringing lightweighting, temperature resistance, extra strength and impact performance to a wide range of applications. This is achieved by compounding a diverse range of glass fibres and mineral fillers, which significantly extend key material properties of polypropylene to enable their use in demanding applications that are crucial for modern society such as automotive, appliances and infrastructure. The Fibremod™ Carbon portfolio of engineered polypropylene (PP) compounds with carbon fibre offers a highly cost-effective alternative to other engineering polymers, high performance polymers or even lightweight metals. These grades are especially suited for interior and exterior automotive applications.
