Best Lightweight Innovation

Treofan/Borealis (Germany/Austria)

PHD1.9 – Polypropylene Capacitor Film of 1.9 μm thickness

This award recognises a company, which has created a product in any plastic technology that helped reduced weight for itself or for the end-product.

Treofan developed ultra thin capacitor films down to 1,9 um with a very high level of thickness homogeneity field stressability, low energy losses and very good mechanical characteristics.
Borealis AG developed a super pure, high isotactic polypropylene homopolymer with a novel polymer design that enables the production of these ultra-fins films.
Treofan and Borealis are planning to further improve those films enabling to additionally reduce thickness for increasing volume efficiency, thermal resistance and electrical break down voltage levels.
