Very Long Fiber Polypropylene vs Nylon

Very Long Fiber (VLF) compounds exhibit excellent price-to-performance characteristics and are routinely considered as a cost management alternative to higher density and higher cost reinforced compounds. Due to lower price, lower specific gravity and comparable physical properties at 50% relative humidity, polypropylene (PP) VLF compounds provide a competitive advantage when compared to glass fiber reinforced nylon (PA) PA6 and PA6/6 compounds. In many applications, VLF polypropylene compounds can be used as drop-in replacements for nylon compounds because they can meet physical performance requirements, offer processing advantages and can be used in existing molds with little or no alterations.
