PP-based composite added to portfolio / Automotive surface applications
Ineos Styrolution (Frankfurt / Germany; has announced the expansion of its portfolio of “StyLight” composites to include a new polypropylene-based composite specifically designed for aesthetic applications – named StyLight Aesthetic. It said it decided to broaden its portfolio following positive reaction from application designers to the company’s SAN-based StyLight composite. The new composite’s primary target markets are in the automotive, sports and electronics industries.

The StyLight portfolio now ranges from a “standard” PP or SAN glass fibre-reinforced composite suitable for non-visible structural applications to an aesthetic composite based on a modified PP. It will also include a SAN-based carbon composite for premium aesthetic surfaces. Premium surfaces made of the thermoplastic composite will remain the strength of the StyLight brand, said Pierre Juan, VP Future Business and Innovation.

The company said it would collaborate with research centre Neue Materialien Fürth (Fürth / Germany; to optimise the new PP based StyLight Aesthetic.
