Ineos Styrolution’s StyLight portfolio ranges from PP (polypropylene) or SAN (styrene acrylonitrile) glass fiber composites suitable for non-visible structural applications to modified PP or SAN based composites specifically designed for aesthetic applications.
With StyLight being popular for premium aesthetic surfaces, the focus of this year’s exhibits is on surface quality.
The PP based StyLight Aesthetic P benefits from Ineos Styrolution’s continued strong investment into the new material. A painted demonstrator, jointly developed with NMF – Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH – gives an impression of the amazing surface quality.
Two additional automotive exhibits, a carbon application for exterior usage from a leading Asian OEM and an interior console validated by ARRK Shapers’, not only demonstrate the product qualities, but also indicate the interest of the automotive industry.
Both exhibits also show the various painting options available for StyLight. While the interior console is covered with a traditional clear coating, the exterior carbon application is over-molded with a clear coating system based on polyurea, made by Panadur, leaving a deep 3D effect.
“StyLight is coming of age. The aesthetic value speaks for itself and I see it being considered for an increasing number of applications by leading OEMS globally. We invite application designers to meet us in Stuttgart to explore if StyLight is an option for their future designs.” summarises Pierre Juan, VP Future Business and Innovation at Ineos Styrolution. “And if you can’t make it to Stuttgart, visit us at K 2019 in Düsseldorf later this year,” he adds.
