At its first CAMX this year, LyondellBasell (Houston, Texas, U.S.) is featuring its enhanced compounding portfolio, which includes styrene-free materials that can be sourced in a variety of forms including sheet molding compounds (SMC), bulk molding compounds (BMC) and engineered structural composites. The materials reportedly deliver low out gassing, reduced volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and low odor while being simple to process, reducing overall system costs. Other characteristics are said to include premium surface appearance for a high-end look and feel, and superior mechanical and thermal properties for high-demand automotive, electronics and construction applications.

Also on display will be an electric vehicle (EV) battery tray made of Premi-Glas 1203-28, a low-shrink, high-strength SMC. Premi-Glas 1203-28 is said to deliver design flexibility, high mechanical performance, and low weight, critical characteristics for the EV market. This material reportedly allows for 3D molding with fast throughput and can be compression molded

A global plastics, chemicals and refining company, LyondellBasell's compounding portfolio includes performance brands Quantum Composites, BMCI, Premix and Tetra-DUR. The company says its products and technologies address issues such as energy storage, production and efficiency, reducing carbon footprint and weight reduction for improved performance. From materials utilizing bio-based feedstocks and recycled content to applications that are focused on addressing today’s emerging trends, the company’s solutions focus on sustainability and improving quality of life.

  • SMC: Old dog, new tricks

    A sheet molding compound renaissance highlights new reinforcements, new fillers, new matrices, new opportunities.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • A critical market sector: Downhole composites in oil and gas

    Tremendous secrecy and non-disclosure has kept this profitable composites application out of the spotlight, while it has enabled the current shale oil energy boom.
