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.

    Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
