LANXESS at the VDI Congress “Plastics in Automotive Engineering”

March 19 2018

LANXESS will be present in Mannheim at the VDI Congress “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” with a special focus on “High-tech thermoplastics for future mobility”. “New forms of mobility, such as autonomous driving, the electrification of vehicle power trains, and new logistics concepts, are important growth drivers for our polyamides, polyesters and thermoplastic composites,” explains Dr. Martin Wanders, head of global applications development in the High Performance Materials business unit.

One highlight at the LANXESS booth is the new “Hollow Profile Hybrid Technology”. Another hot topic at LANXESS is XTS2 thermostabilization (Extreme Temperature Stabilization).

Another focal topic of the LANXESS presence at the congress lies on the continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites of the Tepex brand family. LANXESS is currently developing composite variants with electromagnetic shielding properties especially for components of electrified vehicle drivetrains.

As an example illustrating the topic of electromobility LANXESS will be showing in Mannheim a bracket for a middle-class electric car made of flame-retardant polyamide 6. Another exhibit at the congress will be a connector housing made from a halogen-free, easy-flowing polyamide 6 reinforced by 45% glass fibers.
