AKRON, US: A Schulman Inc (SHLM) has launched its next-generation Lytex SF series, styrene-free sheet moulding compounds (SMCs) delivering outstanding performance.

The company’s engineered composites business has developed Lytex SF, an epoxy-based material presenting low outgassing, reduced volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and low odour.

In addition, this next generation compound is simple to process, providing the ability to lower overall system costs. Other key characteristics include premium surface appearance to maintain a high-end look and feel. The material also features outstanding mechanical and thermal properties for some of the most demanding applications.

"Our R&D teams have met our customers' needs by developing a next-generation material which addresses not only to the end-users needs but also anticipates future regulations for VOC emissions," said Frank Roederer, senior vice president and general manager engineered composites.

"This new development is a perfect example of how A Schulman tackles challenges to develop innovative carbon and glass fibre reinforced products to meet our customers' needs," he added.
