Ulsan, Korea – June 16, 2016 – SONGWON has recently launched its latest innovation for the automotive industry. The new SONGXTEND ® 2124 stabilizer solution 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 1000 h 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 new 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.”
