Fibremod™ Carbon PP 2G – the next generation: Offers improved surface appearance and better dimensional stability
Driving tomorrow with Fibremod Carbon
The revolutionary Fibremod™ Carbon product family is based on second-use carbon fibre, as a more environmentally acceptable alternative to conventional carbon fibre because it helps OEMs and Tiers use valuable material resources more wisely in addition to contributing to a lower overall CO2 footprint.
Borealis now offers even better surface aesthetics and mechanical properties by developing two new low density material solutions. These second-generation Fibremod Carbon grades retain the unsurpassed stiffness and durability of the original compounds while offering improved surface appearance and better dimensional stability:
Fibremod™ CG210SY, with 20% carbon fibre Fibremod™ CD211SY, a hybrid concept made with 10% talc and 10% carbon fibre
Other important advantages offered by the two new grades include good paint adhesion and high flowability. Both are intended for use in structural parts and body panel applications, including fenders and tailgate skins. Both Fibremod CG210SY and Fibremod CD211SY are produced in Europe, yet available globally. Further grades are currently under development for use in painted and unpainted parts, thus expanding the range of potential applications in future.
