Glass-filled polypropylene is a tough material with high strength that is also resistant to high temperatures. It is suitable for functional verification of product prototypes.
BASF PP-GF is a reinforced polypropylene (PP) material that combines the advantages of polypropylene with the added strength and performance of glass fibers. Polypropylene is a widely used material in conventional manufacturing due to its versatility and cost-effectiveness. By incorporating glass fibers, BASF PP-GF offers enhanced toughness, excellent chemical resistance (to acids and alkalis), structural integrity, and low moisture absorption.
BASF PP-GF serves as an economic alternative to PA12 (Nylon 12) while providing improved rigidity, dimensional stability, and abrasion resistance. This makes it well-suited for manufacturing robust jigs and fixtures, housings, and parts subjected to abrasion and wear.
The technical properties of BASF PP-GF are as follows:
|Flexural Strength||33 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||2000 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||58°C|
Please note that the values provided for the technical properties are approximate and can vary depending on specific formulations, manufacturing processes, and testing conditions. It's always recommended to refer to the manufacturer's documentation or data sheets for precise and up-to-date technical specifications for the specific brand and formulation of BASF PP-GF material.
