Lanxess expands High Performance Materials business unit  in Brilon, Germany

BRILON, GERMANY: Lanxess subsidiary, Bond-Laminates, that belongs to the business unit High Performance Materials, has completed capacity expansion at its site in Brilon, Germany, for the high-performance composite Tepex on schedule. The two new production plants were recently taken into operation.

Altogether, the company now has facilities with a total annual capacity of well over four million square meters Tepex. In addition to a new production hall, further storage areas and office space were also added. This capacity expansion comes alongside new developments at the application center in Brilon. By the end of the year, a hybrid molding facility will be installed that will enable Tepex to be formed and over-injected directly with thermoplastics in a single one-shot process.

“We want to use this facility to present this manufacturing technology to our customers in the sports and consumer electronics industries in order to support them in the development of innovative applications. We also want to optimize the processing behavior of new composites and customer-specific material recipes,” said Ulrich Jecmeniza, Application Developer, Bond-Laminates.
