INEOS Styrolution exhibits new automotive solutions at PIAE in Mannheim/ Germany
- High quality automotive interior and exterior applications
- New structures with laser grained surfaces
- StyLight® composite: New exhibits and presentation on latest developments
Frankfurt, Germany, April 3, 2019 - INEOS Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, will offer a comprehensive overview of its material lineup and solutions portfolio for the automotive industry at the PIAE (Plastics in Automotive Engineering) in Mannheim/ Germany (April 3-4, 2019). Highlights include the award-winning Luran® S for exterior applications, new structures with laser structured surfaces and the latest news on the company’s composite StyLight®, designed for structural and aesthetic applications.
Luran® S is the material of choice for automotive exterior applications such as radiator grills and mirror housings. Dedicated grades of the material were developed for weather resistance and state-of-the-art UV stabilization. At the Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris in 2018, Luran S, an ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) polymer, was announced winner of the Automotive Brand Contest in the category “Future, Mobility & Parts”. Today Luran S grades are more and more used for unpainted parts at SUV rear spoilers.
INEOS Styrolution will also exhibit new structures with laser grained surfaces developed in collaboration with Reichle Technologiezentrum GmbH. The following styrenics grades, typical materials of choice for automotive interior and exterior applications, are particularly looked at: Novodur® H701 (ABS), Novodur® H801 (ABS, Novodur® Ultra 4255 (ABS), Luran® SC KR2863C (ASA/ PC), Terblend® N NM-21EF (ABS/ PA) and Luran® HH-120 SPF50 (AMSAN).
New applications of StyLight®, INEOS Styrolution’s composite material for structural and aesthetic applications will be presented at the INEOS Styrolution booth. The material is based on a modified SAN (styrene acrylonitrile copolymers) matrix and diverse fiber textile (carbon fabric, glass fabric, or hybrid carbon/ glass). The latest addition to the StyLight family of composites includes composites based on a PP (polypropylene) matrix offering customers for the first time an aesthetic PP thermoplastic composite solution.
Application designers are invited to attend the presentation “Thermoplastic composites with class A surfaces” by Pierre Juan, Vice President Future Business and Innovation,
Composite Thermoplastics, INEOS Styrolution. The presentation will be held in the workshop session “Interior and surfaces” at 11:30am on April 4.
“I am convinced that our offering for the automotive industry is stronger than ever before, as we are providing improved and new materials for aesthetic applications,” concludes Christophe Ginss, Sales Director Automotive EMEA with global coordination role at INEOS Styrolution. “We provide a wide range of styrenic materials for interior and exterior applications in cars, trucks, agricultural vehicles and two-wheelers.”
