LANXESS commissions two new production lines for Tepex thermoplastic composites


LANXESS has commissioned two new production lines for Tepex continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites at its Brilon, Germany facility. The 1,500-square-meter expansion to the Brilon, Germany facility increases production of the continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites by 50%. 

 “We have increased our capacity for manufacturing Tepex by around 50% and, in doing so, are responding to the strong demand in the mass production of highly stressable components for lightweight vehicles and consumer electronics,” said Christian Obermann, managing director of Bond-Laminates.

LANXESS made an investment in the “mid single-digit millions” to complete the project. The company installed three cutting machines, which includes a four-head waterjet cutting machine used in prefabricating component cuts. With the addition of the new assets, the Brilon facility now has eight production lines.
