Curv®’s unique morphology results in a material with exceptionally high impact strength. Orientation of the tapes during processing is the key to achieving impact strength. Additionally, the woven structure imbedded within Curv® provides high energy dispersion, prevents splintering or delamination. A multi-hit resistant material, without need for additional reinforcement.
Curv® is 100% polypropylene, a material widely recognized as being non-toxic and highly resistant to corrosion. Polypropylene is also resistant to oils and organic solvents. Performance can be further augmented by using additives.
Curv® is gentle on molds and cutting tools, it is easy to handle in the workplace and causes none of the irritation associated with glass fiber reinforced materials.
