When the going gets tough ...

Frequently used for off-road assignments or for driving on extremely poor roads, jeeps and SUVs need to be fitted with particularly durable underbody panels. An innovative material solution for such custom parts is based on the continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites of the Tepex brand made by LANXESS’s subsidiary Bond-Laminates GmbH.

Truck air filter carriers made of highly reinforced polyamide 66 from LANXESS

Polyamides reinforced with a high glass fiber content can also replace metals in commercial vehicles, as demonstrated by two air filter carriers, which will be installed in the Mercedes-Benz Actros starting early next year. These structural parts are made of Durethan AKV 50 H2.0 from LANXESS, a polyamide 66 with a glass fiber content of 50 percent by weight.

“Quality lightens” is LANXESS's motto at this year's VDI conference “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” in Mannheim. The focus will be on material and process solutions for car and commercial vehicle design that generate considerable weight savings and offer added value in terms of cost-effectiveness and component performance. One of the exhibits is an all-plastic brake pedal which weighs about half as much as a comparable steel structure and can also be manufactured in large-scale series production using a cost-effective one shot process.

Durethan BKV 235 H2.0 XCP displays outstanding Charpy notch impact resistance at low temperatures, compared for instance to Durethan BKV 35 H2.0, which is likewise reinforced with 35 percent glass fibers. Despite its rubber-based toughness modifier, its stiffness and strength remain at high levels. Photo: LANXESS AG
