Trinseo (formerly Styron; Horgen, Switzerland) has launched the ENLITE line of structural polymers targeted at semi-structural applications, branded ENLITE long glass fiber polypropylene (LGF-PP) and ENLITE glass fiber (GF) alloys. ENLITE LGF-PP provides glass loadings of 60% glass in a neat polypropylene matrix. ENLITE GF is designed to provide a bridge between the glass-filled polypropylene solutions of today and the enhanced carbon fiber solutions of the future. ENLITE GF is designed for applications in which process constraints are difficult to overcome. For example, when the design of the part necessitates thick walls to meet stiffness requirements, or the elimination of steel reinforcements, GF alloys are said to provide an possible solution. The first product designed in the GF alloys range is the GF-ABS alloy, which is a glass concentrate diluted with ABS.
