Glass Fiber

LANXESS is one of the leading manufacturers of engineering thermoplastics.
Besides production plants for polymer base resins, their monomers as well as their compounds and blends, LANXESS runs a glass fiber production in Antwerp (Belgium).

In addition to state-of-the-art technology regarding manufacturing and environmental protection we run research and development plus technical service departments located at the production site as well as at our headquarters in Germany.

The LANXESS Antwerp plant produces exclusively E-glass fibers. This glass is defined by DIN 1259 as an aluminum borosilicate glass with an alkali content of less than 2 % by weight.

The use of glass fibers as reinforcement in thermoplastic polymers like polyamides, polyesters or polypropylene yields materials with very attractive properties. Glass fiber containing thermoplastic compounds show high strength and stiffness while maintaining a high level of impact strength. Combined with their low specific weight, ease of processing and tailor-made properties, these materials find widespread use in automotive applications and household / electronic appliances.

Our range of glass fibers comprises a broad spectrum of grades which differ with respect to the type of size used (surface treatment), and their form (i.e. fiber diameter, strand length, etc.).

LANXESS glass fibers for the reinforcement of thermoplastics, polyurethanes and thermosets are supplied in different forms for specific purposes. The two basic forms "Chopped strands" (CS) and "Milled fibers" (MF)are available.
