Lightweight Automotive composites
Beaulieu Fibres International offers a full range of engineered polypropylene (PP) bonding fibres for thermoplastic lightweight composites. These fibres are designed to provide an optimal cost to performance ratio in needlepunched compression moulded composite materials, when blended with glass, natural or synthetic reinforcement fibres.
In answer to the continuous strive of the automotive industry to increase performance and reduce emission, BFI has introduced its UtraLink fibres, a family of customized bonding fibres to improve the mechanical, thermal and functional properties of the composite, and further reduce weight.
