This is a Past Webinar

Brand owners and OEMs want to manufacture with sustainable materials, but without compromising mechanical performance and durability. Developments in natural fiber reinforced (NFR) thermoplastics now enable the design of durable, strong and sustainable parts, and in an array of attractive colors.

Compared to other natural fiber reinforced solutions, independent testing has shown these materials offer very significant property improvements in tensile and flexural properties and in impact strength. They offer performance comparable to short glass fiber reinforced alternatives, at a lower density.
