English term or phrase: MFP
Dear all,

Could you please help me find this in French: MFP (multi-filament prolypropylene)? Is the same acronym used in French as well?

Merci!
Paola M
polypropylène multifilament (PMF)
Explanation:
Le dictionnaire spécialisé "Plastiques" en 4 langues (GB, F, D et russe) de G. Kaliske, Ed. Hatier, donne l'abréviation PMF (ce qui ne m'étonne pas étant donné que les Français ont toujours du mal à s'aligner sur les abréviations européennes).
Bon courage et bonne chance
Giselle

Hilo Multifilamento de Polipropileno

Fil Multifilament en Polypropylène

Bonsoir, Paola

Une recherche sur google.com ne donne que le nom entier. Apparemment, pas de sigle.

MFP


Explanation:
Since the equivalent « fil multifilament en polypropylène » seems to be the correct translation, the MFP abbreviation can be used without any risks of confusion, even though I did not see it abbreviated in a French source.


Bonne chance!
