Mondi: Frost & Sullivan Award for Fibromer
Based on its recent research on the natural fiber composites market, Frost & Sullivan presents Mondi with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Leadership Award for Fibromer, Mondi’s natural fiber composite that offers superior mechanical performance with significant weight reduction. This makes it an ideal replacement for polymers and polymer compounds in a number of industries, including the automotive sector.
Manufactured through a proprietary compounding technology that homogenously mixes pulp with polymer granules, Fibromer exhibits superior performance attributes when compared to short-glass fiber, other natural fibers, and talc-filled composites. The lower density of the material combined with the incorporation of cellulosic fibers in optimal proportion makes the finished components much lighter than before. Since Fibromer is highly compatible with injection molding processes; it also helps reduce fabrication time by up to 30 percent.
Frost & Sullivan’s Best Practices Awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
