Better Part Properties thanks to Fewer Fiber Breakage
Plastification System Optimized for Processing Long Glass Fiber Materials
Long glass-fiber-reinforced polypropylene and polyamide are used in automotive lightweight construction especially where high impact toughness, very good crash behavior and low weight are required. However, care must be taken during injection molding, since not every screw is suitable for these materials. To maintain the fiber length reliably and obtain a uniform distribution of the fibers, Engel has developed a new plastification system especially for processing long glass-fiber-reinforced materials.

International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
