Borealis and Borouge polypropylene solutions at VDI Conference

March 03/2011

(Borealis) -- Pioneering developments in high performance polypropylenes (PP) under the bonnet and on the vehicle exterior take centre stage on the Borealis and Borouge stand at the annual “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” conference organized by the VDI Association of German Engineers in Mannheim, Germany on April 6-7. The innovations provide the latest proof of how award-winning materials made by Borealis, a leading provider of chemical and innovative plastics solutions, are increasingly used in automotive applications for their ability to provide both form and function while reducing costs.

Borealis and Borouge will exhibit the glass-reinforced PP Air intake manifold (AIM) now fitted to all 1.4 and 1.6 litre engines on Volkswagen (VW) Golf, Polo, Seat and Skoda models. The AIM is injection moulded in Xmod GB306SAF, a high performance 36% glass fibre reinforced compound that last year received the Frost & Sullivan 2010 Global New Product Innovation Award in the “Automotive under the Hood Plastics” category.
