Biesterfeld is expanding its cooperation with ExxonMobil Petroleum & Chemical to distribute Exxtral performance polyolefins in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.
Exxtral polyolefins are high-performance TPO compounds based on polypropylene.
“We are pleased to extend our cooperation with ExxonMobil to the Nordics,” says Eric Lundén, Managing Director of Biesterfeld Nordic. “Exxtral performance polyolefins completes our product portfolio in Nordics, which further includes high heat ABS, high heat ASA, PC-blends, PMMA, special light guide polycarbonates as well as reinforced high flow and special impact modified polyamide 6 grades.”
Exxtral TPOs are designed to reduce weight and cost without sacrificing performance. They are employed in automotive exterior, interior and under-the-hood applications.
Biesterfeld Plastic has partnered with ExxonMobil for 12 years. It already distributes Exxtral TPOs in Germany, Poland, Austria, Italy, UK and the CIS region.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
As part of its mission to address composites end-use industries, JEC Group is investing in composites showcases at key automotive events worldwide.
The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and NetComposites have announced the detailed conference programme for the Global Composites conference. This new international composites industry event is designed for corporate and division leaders in the industry with a focus on global business, trends and insights for the global composites market.
