PP fibres for lightweight automotive composites

With today’s rush towards greener, sustainable mobility, the automotive industry is under continuous pressure to increase performance and reduce emissions. Car manufacturers and OEMs can rely on Beaulieu’s UltraLink bonding fibre range to help improve mechanical, thermal and functional properties of the composite while reducing weight.

Beaulieu’s PP fibres for thermoplastic lightweight composites offer the most optimal cost-to-performance ratio in needlepunched, compression-moulded composite materials. They blend homogenously with glass, natural or other synthetic reinforcement fibres.

UltraLink: the innovation continues

Beaulieu’s most recent fibre innovation for the automotive composite industry is the UltraLink fibre family. As the first to offer both MONO and BICO technologies, Beaulieu’s fibres for composites guarantee optimal moulding performance, low shrinkage, and dimensional stability.

Your benefits

  • Reduce weight and system cost
  • Increase dimensional stability
  • Increase hydrophobic and anti-fungal properties
  • Reduce VOC/VOG emissions

PP fibres for automotive face fabrics

OEMs and car manufacturers have been relying on Beaulieu’s PP fibres for safe, sustainable and comfortable interior fabrics for many years. Unlike any other PP manufacturer, Beaulieu has the unique colour expertise to match practically any of your colour masters. In addition, Beaulieu’s fibres meet the industry’s most stringent requirements for UV resistance and flame retardance.

UltraPure: innovation for sustainable car fabrics

Beaulieu continues to push the envelope in terms of innovation and sustainability. Beaulieu’s UltraPure line of PP fibres helps manufacturers to reach the toughest VOC/FOG emission targets. In addition, Beaulieu’s UltraBond fibre line allows manufacturers to produce a 100% recyclable fabric, by avoiding the use of harmful chemical binders.
