Product Selection Guide
S²PC is a range of compounded solutions based on sunflower fibers that are designed to offer customers performance and processability over a broad range of applications and markets. Materials have been optimized for injection molding application areas requiring easy processing, impact resistance or stiffness. An overview of different properties is given in Figure 1 and 2.
The market is constantly searching for new and better materials to replace conventional plastics. Replacement materials must meet or even surpass current performance levels in function of the application. In addition such materials must fulfil a variety of other criteria as well, for example enabling weight reduction or easier processability. They should serve to reduce overall system costs. Finally, they must contribute directly to more environmental sustainable solutions.
Introducing Sunflower Fibers into plastics, Golden Compound has developed a range of materials that fits the above mention requirements. Different compounds have successfully replaced PP, mineral filled PP, glass fiber reinforced PP and PS in selected existing applications, by looking at the application requirements and not solely to material properties.
Our standard PP S²PC 3545 with 35 wt% fibers has comparable properties to 20 wt% mineral filled PP.
