Polifil® GFPPCC

Polifil GFPPCC

Chemically Coupled Glass-Reinforced Polypropylene

Polifil® GFPPCC series compounds are homopolymer polypropylenes reinforced with chemically coupled glass fibers. These compounds offer superior strength and stiffness, improved elevated temperature performance, better creep resistance, higher impact strength and higher resistance to high temperature water than conventional glass fiber reinforced polypropylenes. Polifil® GFPPCC products are UL94 HB rated. These compounds are used in chemical resistance applications, appliances, electrical components, automotive, irrigation and utility products. Standard processing techniques are applicable.
