in recent years, the supervision of environmental protection regulations has become increasingly strict, the transformation of automobiles to new energy has become inevitable, and the demand for automotive composite materials will continue to increase. Under the background of the development of automobile lightweight, "Replacing steel with plastic" is the general trend. Recently, Mitsui chemical company plans to produce glass fiber reinforced polypropylene materials from anesaki factory in Japan for automotive interior decoration. The design capacity of the polypropylene composite production facility is 3500 tons/year, and it is planned to be completed in September 2019

in automobile production, fiber reinforced resins will be increasingly used to replace metal materials. It is understood that the composite material made of polypropylene resin and long glass fiber is light in quality and beautiful in appearance. This time, Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd. wants to share with you the structure and operation method of concrete pressure testing machine, which has achieved a good balance between hardness and impact resistance (sh/t0202 ⑼ 2 grease extreme pressure performance measurement method (4-ball machine method). At present, the product has been applied to the interior of the rear door of the car without painting

application of polypropylene in automotive interiors

plastics play an irreplaceable role in meeting automotive aesthetics, comfort, safety, corrosion prevention, lightweight and large design freedom. As one of the five general-purpose plastics, polypropylene can obtain new materials with different properties through toughening, filling, strengthening, blending and other modification methods. Modified polypropylene materials have been widely used in automotive interiors

for example, at present, the dashboard used in cars can be divided into hard dashboard and semi-hard dashboard, and there are many material choices for different models and designs. Most middle and high-end cars use semi-rigid instrument panels. Polypropylene reinforced with 20% glass fiber can be used as the framework and air duct material of semi-rigid instrument panels because of its good rigidity. In addition, the glove box, door guard, auxiliary instrument panel, column guard, seat guard, wrapping frame guard and other auto parts can be made of modified polypropylene materials

Mitsui chemical Rio Tinto's overseas automotive polyethylene material market

with the continuous development of synthetic technology, polypropylene (PP) resin is widely used in various fields such as automobiles, household appliances, pipes, packaging, medical devices, etc. with its excellent performance, especially in the automotive industry, the demand for modified polypropylene materials is rising rapidly, and the market prospect is very promising

at the end of May, Mitsui Chemical Co., Ltd. of Japan said that it would continue to explore the overseas automotive materials market, especially the European market. The company will invest 5billion yen (about 45.5 million US dollars) in the Netherlands to build a new plastic raw material polypropylene plant for the production of automobile bumpers. It is understood that the annual capacity of polypropylene in the new plant will reach 30000 tons, and it is expected to be officially produced in June 2020. The new polypropylene plant will be Mitsui chemical's first polypropylene compound production base in Europe to cope with the growing global demand from the automotive industry

at the same time, Mitsui chemical will also invest 18.4 million euros to set up a subsidiary engaged in the production and operation of polypropylene advanced composites in the same region, and the products will be mainly sold to European automobile manufacturers. It is understood that Mitsui chemical's polypropylene resin sales ranks second in the world. It has factories in seven countries including Japan, India and the United States, an increase of more than 53% over 2018. There is no direct business in Europe, and currently it is mainly commissioned production. The production subsidiary will be its first production activity in Europe

with the deepening of automobile lightweight, the demand for high-performance resins with good heat resistance and impact resistance in Europe will increase significantly. Obviously, this is a promising market and a key area for Mitsui chemical to further develop its business. Of course, Mitsui chemical will also continue to increase its investment in business development in other regions. For example, in Japan, China and the United States, Mitsui chemical plans to expand the production of glass fiber reinforced polypropylene materials, and is expected to complete the capacity expansion plan by 2020. In addition, in the United States, Mitsui chemical is also building a thermoplastic elastomer plant in Ohio, with an annual capacity of 60000 tons/year, which is expected to be put into operation in October 2019

moreover, Mitsui chemical attaches great importance to the automotive material market. This year, Mitsui chemical has invested 30.1 billion yen in the development of automotive materials and related mergers and acquisitions alone. With Mitsui chemical entering the European market, it is expected that by 2025, it will generate a synergy of 3billion to 5billion yen, so as to obtain greater economic benefits


in the past decade, the application of plastics in automobiles has achieved great development. Among many kinds of plastics used in automobiles, the development and application of various modified polypropylene materials in automobiles have increasingly become the focus of the automotive industry and plastic industry. Through various modification processing methods, modified polypropylene materials that meet the different functional requirements of various automotive components can be obtained. Combined with its excellent performance price ratio, various toughened, filled and reinforced polypropylene materials have been widely used in the automotive industry. This has deepened the development trend of automobile lightweight to a certain extent, and accelerated the pace of the era of "replacing steel with plastic", which has a far-reaching impact on the entire automobile industry. Derakane610 vinyl ester, which was also listed in 2011, is specially developed for the emerging FRP infrastructure market. It is precisely because of the progressive trend of automobile lightweight that modified plastics usher in new development opportunities
