LANXESS to present latest innovations at VDI

LANXESS at the VDI conference “Plastics in Automotive Engineering 2008”, March 5 / 6, 2008 in Mannheim/Germany. At the VDI conference “Plastics in Automotive Engineering 2008”, the stand of the LANXESS Semi-Crystalline Products business unit will be devoted to material innovations and technical concepts for making vehicles lighter, more cost effective, and more efficient to run.

“Our development work for the car of the future is very broadly based,” explains Ralf Zimnol, head of Application Development in the Semi-Crystalline Products business unit. “For example, two areas we are concentrating on are functional polymers with anti-static or flame-retardant properties, and easy-flowing thermoplastics that are cost-effective to process into large, thin-walled components.

Further focal points include new material combinations, such as composite sheets for consistent lightweight construction and polyesters and polyamides with a very high modulus ofelasticity as alternatives to metals and expensive specialties.”

The developments are geared towards creating products with added value that – at the very least cost no more than existing series applications. Zimnol will be presenting LANXESS's latest automotive innovations in his lecture “Concepts for optimizing the automotive application of plastics in terms of cost and weight” in Mannheim, Germany at 1.15 p.m. on March 6.

Applications with highly filled Pocan and Durethan grades will be a consistent theme running through the LANXESS exhibits. Because of their high glass fiber content of between 40 and 60 percent, these materials are very stiff, but still boast excellent flow properties.

“They can be used to manufacture thin components that can still withstand high mechanical loading – opening up significant potential for weight reduction,” says Zimnol. For example, the display will include hinges for the rear door of a van and the door handle of a car, both produced using Durethan DP BKV 60 H2.0 EF reinforced with 60 percent glass fibers.
