Asahi Kasei Plastics North America’s Thermylene P8 specialty compounded polypropylene (PP) resin offers improved short-glass-reinforced PP, providing an alternative to long-glass technology. Offering a balance of performance properties including strength, impact, and stiffness, Thermylene P8 provides creep resistance at room temperature and comparable creep resistance at elevated temperatures when compared to long-glass-filled PP technology. Interfacial adhesion between matrix and reinforcement is optimized for each use. Thermylene P8 materials also offer the benefits of knitline strength and screw-torque retention. Available in varying glass levels and numerous colors, Thermylene P8 can be used in automotive and any other plastic applications that traditionally require long-fiber performance. Faurecia Interior Systems used Thermylene P8 for the 2009 Jeep Liberty SUV inner door module (pictured).
