JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Polynt Composites has invested in its German location near Frankfurt in a new production line fully dedicated to manufacturing of Carbon fiber reinforced SMC for serial applications.
Polynt is a specialist in the production and sales of anhydrides and derivatives along the chain across resins and up to compounds for more than 60 years. Based on such integrated business model, the Polynt Composites Division provides a wide range of UPR and VE resins as well as Glass- and Carbon fiber reinforced composites.
In four plants, located in Italy, Germany, Poland and South Korea, Polynt Composites produces Sheet Molding Compounds (SMC) and Bulk Molding Compounds (BMC) with a total capacity of 80.000 tons/Y.
As an answer to the increasing market requests for new lightweight materials, Polynt Composites has invested in its German location near Frankfurt in a new production line fully dedicated to manufacturing of Carbon fiber reinforced SMC for serial applications. This industrial line has a production width of max. 1,5 mtr., is equipped with devices to operate with chopped carbon fibers in different fiber lengths, with recycled carbon fleece and with all types of fabric for prepregs. Polynt Composites has developed and is using new resins systems in order to propose the CF-SMC’s for applications in various market sectors. The new CF-SMC is in operation since spring this year and has a capacity of about 2.000 tons/Y.
In order to develop dedicated products Polynt Composites Germany has a laboratory line for sampling and small lots; this line can also be used for production of CF-SMC with unidirectional fibers. All respective plant infrastructure such as cooled storage, paste preparation area, test laboratory and all safety and environmental facilities and devices are available at the location due to its current GF-SMC activities.Due to the high performance, carbon fiber SMC attract attention of carmakers, aerospace and other industries, which are looking materials to reduce the total weight and increase energy efficiency.
Polynt Composites CF-SMC’s are developed to obtain aesthetic, semi-structural and structural parts and can be used in compression molding process for components with an high geometric complexity and as prepreg suitable for different technologies like autoclave and press molding.Due to the growing demand for carbon fiber materials, Polynt’s management is evaluating the possibility of opening a further production line in South Korea in 2016.
The future of carbon fibre looks bright. All traditional sectors using carbon fibre consume more and more of this extraordinary fibre. Aeronautic, of course, is pursuing its conversion from black...
