Saint-Gobain Reinforcement & Composites has increased its European production capacity for Twintex by 25% at its Chambery plant, as of April 2007.

This latest investment in Europe follows an increasing market demand for the now well-established Twintex product range in various industries and all over the world.

Latest Twintex developments include the new Twintex pellets. This is a new type of highly concentrated long fibre reinforced pellet dedicated to LFT (Long Fibre Thermoplastic) structural component manufacturing, which are said to improve customers’ productivity and provide excellent mechanical properties.

Successful applications and customer partnerships cover all industries: energy with LPG gas bottles, solar panels, aeronautics with air cargo containers, sports & leisure with catamarans, and the automotive sector with door modules, front ends, truck bodies, etc.

Twintex is based on commingled unidirectional thermoplastic and glass fibres, to solve the problem of impregnating continuous glass fibres with thermoplastic resins at a low cost.
