Sustavacu® is a newly developed glass fibre filled plastic sheet that allows economical production of high-quality formed parts by means of thermo-forming.

The parameters for processing were determined in numerous thermoforming tests by the Application Technology Department of ILLIG, a world leader in thermoforming equipment.

The properties of Sustavacu® can be characterised by the following:

  • Excellent thermoformability
  • Very good mechanical strength
  • High stiffness
  • High rigidity
  • Excellent creep resistance
  • Excellent dimensional stability
  • Good impact strength
  • High resistance to solvents, fuels and lubricants
  • Excellent continuous service temperature range -20º to +140ºC
  • High resistance to deformation at high temperature
  • Can be friction or heat welded
  • Can be glued using solvent glues, isocyanates, anaerobics or concentrated formic acid
  • Can be printed
  • Can Vacuum Metallised subject to surface pre-treatment


Fields of application: automotive components such as housings in HVAC applications, fenders, side linings of trucks and other machinery, bezels.

Sustavacu® absorbs moisture during storage, this might cause bubbles during forming. Please refer to Sustavacu® properties and processing page.
