RTP Company Announces Long Fiber Thermoplastics Availability at China Facility

WINONA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RTP Company, a global leader in specialty compounds, has added multiple long fiber-reinforced thermoplastic (LFRT) production lines at its Suzhou, China manufacturing facility.

The long glass fiber compounds are based on various resin systems including nylon and polypropylene.

“The new LFRT lines will support our rapidly-growing automotive and industrial customer base in China along with offering long fiber technology to other markets for applications requiring higher strength at lighter weights,” said Joe Kluck, Executive Vice President at RTP Company.

RTP Company’s 16,000 square meter (170,000 square feet) manufacturing plant in Suzhou, China was opened in December 2005. The state-of-the-art facility offers a full complement of customer support, product development, and technical service.

RTP Company significantly expanded its LFRT capabilities earlier this year with the opening of a long fiber facility near its Winona, Minnesota headquarters. RTP Company also installed additional long fiber lines at several of its worldwide operations in 2006 and introduced a broader long fiber product offering.

Long Fiber Compounds are often used to replace metals and consequently have become one of the fastest-growing materials in the thermoplastic industry. They offer excellent mechanical properties and their high strength-to-weight ratios result in parts that can withstand heavy loads over long periods of time, even in elevated temperatures.
