Specialty chemicals company Lanxess will bring together three business units – High Performance Materials, Inorganic Pigments, and Rhein Chemie Additives – to present a comprehensive range of products and services for the plastics industry at the 2015 National Plastics Expo in Orlando, FL, USA.
Mumbai/India – The key showcase features the evolution of front end carriers – from plastic-metal hybrid to hydroforming-hybrid design to the first full-plastic design – constructed with Lanxess’ Durethan highly reinforced polyamides.
“In spite of the current temporary low gas prices, the need for innovative lightweight solutions in automotive engineering is unbroken,” says Dr. Marcus Schaefer, general manager, Americas for business unit High Performance Materials. “Lanxess is continuously developing new materials and engineering tools to support our customers with sustainable solutions to meet the CAFE standards. The evolution from replacing full steel applications with plastic-metal hybrid, and now even full-plastic and composite solutions shows that Lanxess has been, and will be a reliable and technology driven development partner for the automotive industry.”
