BRUSSELS, BELGIUM: Tessenderlo Group inaugurated its new CTS production plant in Changsu, China. The new plant will produce high-performance, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) and slush moulding compounds for automotive applications. CTS Automotive Compounds Ltd will produce the Marvyflo and Tefabloc brands that have been successfully marketed by CTS in China and Asia for more than 10 years.

The Marvyflo free flowing powder compounds are the reference material for slush moulding of dashboards and door panels, as well as other interior surfaces. The new development ‘lightweight Marvyflo’ will allow for 10 per cent weight reduction of the dashboard skins.

This investment is in line with the strategy of Tessenderlo Group’s business unit compounds, which now increases its presence in the growing automotive market in Asia, where all major global car producers and producers of automotive parts are present. “We are proud to open this state of the art production facility that will supply our Asian customers with the CTS quality standard they are counting on,” said Albert Vasseur, Director of Plastics Converting, Tessenderlo.
