High Performance Materials for Electric Mobility

LANXESS has added product variants highly reinforced with glass fibers to the high-tech plastics of the Durethan brand. These were developed in 2017 by the High Performance Materials business unit, and are particularly suitable for applications in electric mobility. The innovative new material is highly flame-resistant and especially creepage-resistant.


As it additionally combines outstanding mechanical properties with impressive processing capabilities, it is ideally suited to use in high-performance batteries and the drive train of electric vehicles, for example. In this way, we are also supporting resource-efficient lightweight construction in the field of electric mobility.


With an improvement to the product line for high-purity polyurethane prepolymers, known as low-free products, the Urethane Systems business unit has reaffirmed its global technology leadership. Use of the new products with very low residual monomer contents reduces exposure of workers to potentially carcinogenic substances. In addition, the product line boasts improved processing capabilities and product quality, making it suitable for the most demanding applications, e.g. in the tire and caster industry and the adhesives sector.
