Asahi Kasei Plastics North America Inc. (Fowlerville, Mich.) has launched a new polypropylene technology called Thermylene P8, a specially compounded polypropylene resin designed to provide good creep resistance at room temperature and comparable creep resistance at elevated temperatures when compared to long glass-filled PP. It's formulated for optimized interfacial adhesion between matrix and reinforcement and to balance impact and strength. It's available in a variety of glass levels and colors. The material is said to be suitable for use in vehicle door modules.
