Contributes to a lower environmental footprint
Responsible use of fossil resources is made possible through today’s best practices that dictate the use of geosynthetic construction materials like geotextiles, geomembranes and geogrids.
PP nonwovens have become essential elements in the durable construction of buildings and infrastructure projects. Used as a separation and filtration layer under roads, a 175 g/m² geotextile can replace a 30 cm layer of gravel, which result in a significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
PPH 4069 for nonwoven geotextiles
PPH 4069 allows to increase both tenacity and residual elongation of staple fibers for an unrivalled toughness through an optimized degree of crystallinity and molecular design.
As a consequence, the high energy absorption potential of these fibers enables a significant downgauging at equal performance, thus allowing for a significant reduction of environmental footprint.
These metallocene polypropylenes offers best in class processibility and mechanical performance compared to non-metallocene PP homopolymers.
Supporting sustainability through ecodesign
MR10YN9 for bonding fibres
This unique metallocene random PP combines a low melting point with an extremely low level of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and a gasfading resistant stabilization. This product has proved to be a cornerstone in the development of recyclable textile products, made entirely of PP, with MR10YN9 replacing existing solutions such as PE or latex.
