Chopped strand DS 2200-13P
A newly developed chopped strand by 3B, Battice, Belgium, has the potential of helping OEMs, compounders and molders expand the application range of reinforced polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) compounds. DS 2200-13P chopped strand is made from Advantex boron-free E-glass. The new product offers a unique combination of properties that enable reinforced PP and PE to replace metal and other reinforced thermoplastics in applications such as automotive components and household appliances that demand exceptional mechanical and aging performance.
The new DS 2200-13P chopped strand provides critical performance benefits, including outstanding stiffness, excellent impact resistance, high density for optimal flow, and excellent dispersion capability for use in high (>50%) glass fiber loading PP compounds. Furthermore, this product also offers exceptional hydrolytic performance, making it ideal for use in high-speed washers, dishwashers and other appliances with exposure to water and detergents.
DS 2200-13P chopped strand is made with Advantex glass fiber which is performance-proven through long-term exposure to water and alkaline solutions. It also provides longer service life and larger safety coefficients for the same design, and material savings through reduction in sections and wall thickness.
Cost benefits are another part of the value package. DS 2200-13P chopped strand can be used with much lower levels of chemical coupling agents than competitive products without impacting mechanical performance.
