The Thermylene P11 family of chemically coupled PP compounds is currently available in 30%, 40%, 45% and 50% glass loadings. Accordings to the manufacturer Asahi Kasei Europe GmbH, Düsseldorf, Germany it delivers high tensile strength and facilitates thinwall molding for a wide range of applications.

The new compounds offer higher tensile strength at elevated temperature, greater room temperature tensile, and improved fatigue and creep resistance compared to the predecessor material family, Thermylene P10. Thinwall molding is possible thanks to Thermylene P11’s melt flow of 10-25 g/10 min.

Asahi Kasei is targeting a range of structural parts in the automotive and appliance markets. In interior automotive, key applications include door modules, center consoles, load floors, and instrument panels. Underhood automotive parts include fan shrouds, battery trays, front end modules, and grille shutters. In appliance, Thermlyene P11 is targeted for heat-exposed dryer components such as lint trays.

Thermylene P11 provides up to 40% improvement in measured tensile strength at 80°C and 120°C compared to conventional glass-filled PP. Thermylene P11 GF40% boasts flexural modulus of 10,000 MPa, tensile strength of 125 MPa, and a heat distortion temperature of 155°C.
