Ensinger acquires thermoplastic composite business

Ensinger has acquired the StyLight thermoplastic composite materials business of INEOS Styrolution. 

The acquisition adds an exclusive SAN based product range to Ensinger’s comprehensive thermoplastic composite portfolio.

The materials are styrene acrylonitrile (SAN) based, bringing new thermoplastic composite products to the market such as carbon, glass and natural based fiber products for aesthetic materials, semi structural, and over molding applications, Ensinger said.

Ensinger has rebranded StyLight as Tecatec, its existing thermoplastic composite materials brand.

“The addition of the INEOS Styrolution StyLight business is the next strategic building block in Ensinger’s journey to becoming one of the only manufacturers able to offer the complete value chain of thermoplastic composite products,” says Ralph Pernizsak, MD, Ensinger.
