As seen in PT

  • Why Thermoplastic Composites Are Hot in Automotive

    A new conference brings together the leaders in this emerging field of technology.

  • Why All the Fuss About Thermoplastic Composites in Automotive?

    Find out at a brand-new conference this June in Novi, Mich.

  • Materials News at K 2013

    There was no shortage of interesting materials developments at K 2013, in particular high-performance engineering thermoplastics and thermoplastic composites—much of them geared to automotive/transportation.

  • First Biobased PBT Production Under Way

    Lanxess in Germany (U.S. office in Pittsburgh) recently made a production run of Pocan PBT using 20 metric tons of biobased BDO (1,4-butanediol) made with the process developed by San Diego-based Genomatica.

  • K 2013 Preview: Materials & Additives

    The K 2013 show will present a broad range of engineered plastics materials, including thermoplastic composites, as well as additives. Automotive and electronic applications will be the main targets, as well as medical, packaging, lighting, and construction.

  • First Biobased PBT Production Under Way

    WEB EXCLUSIVE: Lanxess in Germany recently made a production run of Pocan PBT using 20 metric tons of biobased BDO (1,4-butanediol) made with the commercially-proven process developed by San Diego-based Genomatica.

  • News in Materials & Machinery at SPE Blow Molding Conference

    New barrier materials for small fuel tanks, tooling developments for large, flat, and odd-shaped industrial parts, new all-electric machines for large containers, and gravimetric extrusion control for bottles are some of the topics discussed at the recent SPE Blow Molding Div. annual conference in Pittsburgh.

  • Nylon Replaces Metal in Auto Transmission Oil Pan

    WEB EXCLUSIVE: A 60% glass-reinforced nylon 6 from Lanxess LLC, Pittsburgh, has replaced steel sheet in the extremely flat, yet very stiff S tronic transmission oil pan on the new Audi R8.

  • The New Lightweights: Injection Molded 'Hybrid' Composites Spur Automotive Innovation

    A thermoplastic composite technology that emerged just a couple of years ago promises to make dramatic strides within the next two years in automotive mass production of structural components.

  • Lanxess Expanding Nylon Production & Compounding

    Lanxess AG (U.S. office in Pittsburgh) plans to build a new world-scale nylon plastics plant in Antwerp, Belgium.

  • Automotive Drives Injection Overmolding of Composite Sheet

    The drive for weight savings in the auto industry has spawned a growing range of applications for overmolding of so-called “organic sheet composites.” These are continuous-fiber fabrics preimpregnated with thermoplastic resin (usually nylon), which are then heated until soft and placed in an injection mold, where they are formed and overmolded in selected areas with additional nylon to add ribs, attachment points, etc.

  • Lanxess to Produce First Bio-Based EPDM

    WEB EXCLUSIVE: The world’s first partially bio-based EPDM rubber is expected to be produced by Lanxess AG of Germany (parent of Lanxess Corp., Pittsburgh) by the end of this year.

  • ADDITIVES: A New Toolkit for Modifying PLA

    New additives boost performance, processability, and appearance of biopolymer.

  • More Compounding Expansions

    In addition to three compounding expansions reported in March, three more have emerged:•Lanxess Corp., Pittsburgh, recently broke ground on a new compounding facility in Gastonia, N.C.

  • WEB EXCLUSIVE: Up to now, high-current circuit breakers have been made mainly of thermoset urea or polyester.

  • ‘Organic Hybrid’ Composites Highlighted at K Show

    One of the materials trends hailed at this month’s K 2010 show in Dusseldorf was the replacement of plastic-metal “hybrid” composites with all-plastic “organic hybrids” in structural parts for automotive and other markets.

  • WEB EXCLUSIVE: Lanxess (U.S. office in Pittsburgh) recently determined that peelable adhesive films can be produced with its Levamelt ethylene vinyl acetate rubber (EVM) by coextrusion with polyolefins instead of the more capital-intensive process of coating Levamelt onto a PE or PP carrier film.

  • WEB EXCLUSIVE: With dimensions of around 39.4 x 33.5 x 12.6 in., the Audi A8 spare wheel recess is an unusually large injection molded part.
