Songwon launches Songxtend 2124 stabilizer solution which was specifically developed to meet the stringent demands of the automotive industry where weight and cost reduction are dominant factors.

Songxtend 2124 stabilizer improves the long-term thermal stability (LTTS) of the short- and long-glass fiber re-inforced polypropylene (PP) used in interior applications for molded parts, and can match the LTTS performance of 1000h and beyond at 150° C. The new stabilizer contributes to making it possible for molded parts to be thinner and lighter while still having similar mechanical properties as unfilled parts.

Commenting on the product, Thomas Schmutz, Leader Global Technical Service & Application Development said: “Songxtend 2124 demonstrates our drive to support the automotive industry. With this new addition, Songwon now offers a full range of stabilizers for un-filled, talc and glass-filled PP. Providing a cost-efficient alternative to the existing solutions available, Songxtend 2124 has already enabled one of Songwon’s global customers to reduce costs in its glass fiber reinforced PP application while exceeding 1000h at 150° C, long-term thermal stability.”
