Lanxess at JEC show 2022

Lanxess says that it will be focusing on electromobility and sustainability products at the JEC Show, taking place from 3–5 May 2022.

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.
