LNP Introduces Four New Verton Long Fiber Reinforced Composites Materials

05 December 2003

LNP Engineering Plastics has added four new products to its family of Verton long fiber reinforced composites.

LNP developed the new materials – Verton Xenoy, Verton WF Series, Verton MFX Concentrate, and Verton UF composites – to offer additional high-performance product options to design engineers in a wide variety of markets and applications.

The new materials are based on LNP’s proven Verton long glass fiber reinforced technology, which provides superior mechanical properties compared with short glass fiber reinforced materials. Specifically, the new materials include: Verton Xenoy composite for structural aesthetic automotive and off-road vehicle applications; Verton WF composite – based on GE Plastics’ Valox resin – a tight-tolerance material for high-moisture automotive and marine applications; Verton MFX Concentrate composite, a 70% glass, cost-effective polypropylene concentrate for large industrial and automotive component applications; and Verton UF composite based on PPA for high-temperature, under-the-hood automotive applications. (For additional details on these products, please see attached fact sheet).

“With the new Verton products, we plan to reach previously untapped segments of the automotive, marine, and off-road vehicles markets,” said Matt Miklos, global Verton business leader for LNP. “These products extend the traditional design space of long fiber composites into exciting, emerging areas like high-moisture, high temperature and structural aesthetic applications.”

“Through the ongoing development of new Verton materials and niche market applications, LNP is demonstrating its commitment to maintaining its global leadership in long fiber technology,” said Charlie Crew, president and CEO of LNP. “In fact, we’re making investments across the board to ensure that LNP continues to be at the forefront of this technology.”
