LANXESS expands production capacity for continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites

The company’s Tepex continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites are used in series applications in the automotive, consumer electronics and sports industries.

Bond-Laminates GmbH (Brilon, Germany) announced Oct. 16 it is increasing its production capacity for continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites of the brand Tepex. The company, a wholly owned subsidiary of specialty chemicals company LANXESS (Cologne, Germany), is currently building a new, fourth production hall of around 1,500 m2 at its Brilon site. Two additional production lines are scheduled to go into operation there in mid 2019. 

The continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites of the Tepex brand are used in series applications in the automotive, consumer electronics and sports industries. The resilient material is processed by injection molding without additional postprocessing steps, making it well suited for high-volume mass production.
