New Company Formed for Pure Thermoplastic Composite Material

19 February 2007

Royal Lankhorst Euronete has started up a new company, Lankhorst Pure Composites to develop, produce and sell Pure composite materials world wide and to offer support to customers with respect to the use of the material.

Prior to January 2007, Lankhorst Indutech, a subsidiary of the Rope & Yarn division of the Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group, had been responsible for developing and marketing the material.

Pure thermoplastic composite material is made from co-extruded polypropylene tapes, which can be woven into a fabric. Several layers of fabric can be compacted into sheets or component parts, otherwise known as self-reinforced plastics. The material is characterised by high stiffness, low weight, high impact strength and 100% recyclability and the technology is appropriate to markets such as automotive, consumer, construction and protection.

To offer additional customer support, Lankhorst Pure Composites will also have the availability of a newly established pilot plant in Sneek, Holland.

The last few months have seen increasing activity in this family of materials, including the launch of a new business, Aptiform, specifically to mould components from these types of self-reinforced plastics.
