Renolit Tecnogor is a versatile, high-quality, lightweight thermoplastic composite sheet and roll material solution that enables automotive trim parts to be cost-effectively fabricated. A key benefit for thermoformers using this polypropylene/glass fibre-based substrate is that it can be shaped in a ‘glue free’, one-step process.
The Tecnogor material is also safer for staff to handle than glass fibre reinforcement fabrics, thanks to its glass fibres being completely embedded in the PP polymer matrix during extrusion. As a result, there are no free-floating fibres in the air or exposed glass fibres in the moulding, resulting in safe-to-handle finished trim parts with smooth surfaces and edges. The superior stiffness and impact performance achieved by Tecnogor is a result of the unique patented PP/GF composition and extrusion process used by the Renolit Composites production lines in Italy.
