Ensinger, Germany, has acquired Swiss company next composites, a processor of thermoplastic composites.

Ensinger already offers semi-finished products made of highly filled carbon fibre composite, however the process technologies from next composites will enhance its range of manufacturing technologies. Next composites will benefit from the Ensinger group’s broad customer base.

Carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastics are particularly suitable for lightweight construction applications in the automotive, medical and mechanical engineering sectors. Sports goods such as bike components and winter sports equipment are an additional growth market for these materials. Compared with thermosets, thermoplastics can be welded and usually offer higher levels of toughness, improved chemical resistance, and they can be used effectively as a recyclate.
