LANXESS at the VDI Congress “Plastics in Automotive Engineering”, July 28 and 29, 2020

June 29 2020

LANXESS will have several emphases during its appearance at the VDI Congress “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” (PIAE), which is being held virtually due to the Corona pandemic. “Among other things, we will present lightweight solutions based on our Tepex-branded continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites for brake pedals as well as structural components of the vehicle body and high-voltage battery,” says Thomas Malek, Business Development manager for Tepex Automotive in the High Performance Materials (HPM) business unit at LANXESS. “We will also be concentrating on blow-moldable and injection-moldable polyamide compounds for tanks and hollow parts for the air management of turbocharged engines.”

A highlight of LANXESS’s presentation will be the tank of a BMW Motorrad road machine, which is made from Durethan BC550Z 900116 DUSXBL. The potential of Tepex-branded composite materials for use in lightweight applications will be demonstrated on several exhibits – for example, on an all-plastic brake pedal developed for a battery-electric sports car will also be showcased. A further example of systematic lightweight design using Tepex is an A-pillar with a 3D hybrid design that Porsche has developed for vehicles such as convertibles and roadsters and is employing for the first time in the Porsche 911 convertible.
