Mass Transit

Dynamic Modifiers introduces low-smoke, flame-retardant thermoplastic compound

Made for a wide range of markets, PAL...VersaCHAR addresses concerns surrounding traditional flame-retardant materials without sacrificing performance.

Design/Simulation

CFP Composites launches low-cost, carbon fiber laminate that processes like metal

The BM-5 laminate board can be screwed, tapped, fastened, bonded and painted just like a metal, and requires no prepreg, layout or curing. It also has a comparable cost to metal, removing operator and financial barriers to adopt carbon fiber.

Thermoplastics

ICP thermoplastic tension members enable flex strength improvement

TM continuous fiber-reinforced rods help plastic parts perform more like metal by increasing load capacity and overall stiffness of the molded part. 

Materials

Avient launches reSound R recycled content portfolios

Formerly PolyOne, Avient expands the range of sustainable solutions with its thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), polyamide and polycarbonate portfolios.

Consumer

Lanxess thermoplastic material targets high flame-retardant properties

Tepex continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites variants with a PA6 matrix are certified as UL 94 V-0 and retain a high degree of strength, rigidity and energy absorption.
