Concerning COMPOSITE materials, the Mitsui Chemicals Group provides and continuously develops long fiber reinforced thermoplastic compounds (LFT – MOSTRON™) and unidirectional fiber reinforced tapes based on carbon fiber and polypropylene (CF/PP – UD-Tapes).
Regarding the UD-Tapes based on CF/PP, they are distinguished by a specially own developed PP-compatible sizing for carbon fibers, which allows a very good fiber matrix adhesion and therefore also high mechanical properties. In addition, an own modified PP compound as matrix is used, so that the bonding is again increased and higher application temperatures are possible for a short time.
