Benefits in using natural fibres for injection moulding are light weight (minimize up to 30%), high energy absorption capacity (side impact), best recycling possibilities (EU directive), good mechanic properties good formability (“one shot”), are favorable price raw materials, have high noise absorption, a very slight fogging rate, slow burning rate, slight friction noise, good rigidity and notch toughness.
