Bond-Laminates Completes Capacity Expansion

Lanxess subsidiary Bond-Laminates GmbH, that belongs to the business unit High Performance Materials, has completed capacity expansion at its site in Brilon, Germany, for the high-performance composite Tepex on schedule. The two new production plants were recently taken into operation.

Bond-Laminates is strengthening its business with a capacity increase of Tepex lightweight plastics at the Brilon site in Germany (figure: Lanxess)

Altogether, the company now has facilities with a total annual capacity of well over four million square meters Tepex. In addition to a new production hall, further storage areas and office space were also added. “These investments come in response to the rapidly rising demand for Tepex, particularly in the automotive, sports equipment and consumer electronics industries,” said Jochen Bauder, Managing Director of Bond-Laminates. This capacity expansion comes alongside new developments at the application center in Brilon. By the end of the year, a hybrid molding facility will be installed that will enable Tepex to be formed and over-injected directly with thermoplastics in a single one-shot process.

Tepex comprises continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites. Polyamide, polypropylene, thermoplastic polyurethane, polycarbonate or polyphenylene sulfide is used for the thermoplastic matrix. The continuous-fiber fabrics are made of glass, aramid or carbon fibers. The advantage of Tepex and its products is the high stiffness and strength alongside the very low weight, which means that it can be used in many applications as an alternative to heavier materials such as sheet metal.
