Colored concrete is being used increasingly as a premium building material. Numerous buildings are constructed every year around the world that are colored with inorganic pigments.

Frequently used for off-road assignments or for driving on extremely poor roads, jeeps and SUVs need to be fitted with particularly durable underbody panels. An innovative material solution for such custom parts is based on the continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites of the Tepex brand made by LANXESS’s subsidiary Bond-Laminates GmbH.
The use of thermoplastics in the electrical and electronics industry (E&E) will continue to grow strongly in the future thanks to megatrends such as Industry 4.0, LED lighting and the digital networking of building services engineering, household appliances and entertainment electronics.
Polyamides reinforced with a high glass fiber content can also replace metals in commercial vehicles, as demonstrated by two air filter carriers, which will be installed in the Mercedes-Benz Actros starting early next year. These structural parts are made of Durethan AKV 50 H2.0 from LANXESS, a polyamide 66 with a glass fiber content of 50 percent by weight.
