The company plans to exhibit its new Tepex Scopeblue bio-based composite material based on flax and polylactic acid. According to the company, the biocomposite is lightweight thanks to the low density of the reinforcing continuous flax fibers. Its weight-specific stiffness is comparable to that of the equivalent glass-fiber reinforced material variants and it can be produced to a level of quality suitable for large-scale production.
On show will also be a composite front-end support and a battery tray designed for electric vehicles. According to the company, the component is manufactured using a hybrid molding process with polypropylene-based Tepex dynalite 104-RG600.
