Lightweight Automotive composites

Beaulieu Fibres has developed a range of engineered polypropylene (PP) bonding fibres for thermoplastic lightweight composites. Each of the bonding fibres is designed to provide a homogenous blend and optimal moulding performance. Additionally, with their inherently low shrinkage properties Beaulieu’s bonding fibres offer dimensional stability in compression moulding. The fibre recipes are designed and customised to meet the most stringent OEM requirements in terms of heat stability, VOC/FOG and odour.


  • Dtex range 3.3 - 17 
  • Crimps (per cm) 2 - 6
  • Cut length (mm) 40 - 90 
  • Colour natural and black


  • Door panels
  • Underbody shields
  • Wheel arch liners
  • Parcel shelves
  • Head liners

Reduced weight, lower system cost, enhanced acoustic properties

  • Weight reduction
  • Dimensional stability in moulding
  • Low shrinkage, excellent elongation
  • Enhanced acoustic properties
  • Complies with stringent heat stability, VOC/FOG and interior odour
  • requirements


Our colour development department can match any of your OEM colour masters for automotive interior fabrics. The fibre recipe is designed to comply with OEM requirements in terms of UV resistance, VOC/FOG emission and flame retardance (FR). The low melt PP bonding fibres contribute to a fully recyclable system (patent pending), replacing the use of latex.


  • In-house master colour development
  • Dtex range 3.3 - 17 
  • Crimps (per cm) 3 - 6
  • Cut length (mm) 40 - 90 
  • Rest shrinkage < 3 %
  • Flame retardant (FR) functionality
