PPG Industries’ fiber glass business has expanded its portfolio of chopped strand products with the addition of three CHOPVANTAGE® chopped strand fiber products. The products were featured last week at JEC Europe 2012 in Paris, and they are being showcased in Orlando this week during the NPE2012 international plastics exposition hosted by SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association.

“The launch of these new chopped strand fiber products further expands our comprehensive line of CHOPVANTAGE chopped strand fibers that provide high levels of mechanical properties with excellent hydrolysis and heat resistance, and processing,” said Co den Besten, PPG global business director of chopped fibers for thermoplastics. “What is exciting is that we now offer our customers even more chopped strand fiber glass options with our best-in-class thermoplastic chemistry for their applications where mass reduction is an important requirement.”

CHOPVANTAGE HP3270 fiber glass is a 10 micron chopped strand fiber that offers high performance in polypropylene compounds and improved chemistry for DAM (dry as molded) properties. It provides excellent performance in standard application compounds as well as hot detergent solutions. End-use product applications can be found in the automotive and appliance segments, such as in washers and dryers where white color characteristics are critical.

CHOPVANTAGE HP3613 chopped strand reinforcement offers the proprietary sizing chemistry of the CHOPVANTAGE HP3610 chopped strand fiber glass in a 13 micron fiber diameter. Available for polyamide applications, it offers high hydrolysis resistance in long life coolant systems and meets U.S. Food and Drug Administration and EU food compliance requirements as well as potable water guidelines.

CHOPVANTAGE HP3730 chopped strand fiber glass offers excellent DAM properties and exceptional hydrolysis resistance in thermoplastic polyesters, such as PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) and PET (polyethylene terephthalate) compounds. In addition, it creates exceptional mechanical properties in biodegradable plastics such as PLAs (polylactic acids), PHAs (polyhydroxyalkanoates) and PTTs (polytrimethyleneterephthalates). The superior mechanical properties of this chopped strand fiber glass product support its use in high-end applications for transportation, electric and electronic appliances, and computer housings and components.

“We are committed to delivering solutions to our customers to help them meet the needs of their customers,” said Gerald Marino, PPG global business director for transportation and consumer markets. “The expansion of our chopped strand product line empowers our customers to position themselves for long-term growth and expansion of their business in the fiber glass reinforcement product industry.”
