Tepex® flowcore

Tepex® flowcore – cost effective flow molding

Tepex® flowcore consists of long (30 - 50 mm) glass fibers, similar to traditional glass mat thermoplastic materials (GMT), but based on engineering polymers. In optimizing design, Tepex® flowcore can be combined with Tepex® dynalite to provide stiffeners and ribs for reinforcement. Tepex® flowcore materials can be processed by standard compression molding and are intended for automotive and industrial use when standard GMT and injection molding thermoplastics cannot meet temperature and structural requirements.

Characteristics

  • Long glass fibers
  • Design optimization – in combination with Tepex® dynalite
  • Enables supporting elements i.e. rips on a continuous fiber reinforced structure
  • Adequate mechanical and thermal properties
