    The brand StyLight comprises a portfolio of materials offering unique combinations of surface aesthetics, structural stiffness and easy processability. StyLight offers a solution for a range of demanding automotive interior and exterior applications as well as for applications in other industries such as electronics or toys/ sports/ leisure. The most recent developments presented at ITHEC 2020 make the spectrum of applications suitable for the StyLight composite even broader. At its virtual booth, INEOS Styrolution will demonstrate three advancements of the StyLight material:

  • Aesthetic natural fiber based StyLight composite offering new bio-based solutions.
  • Advancements related to new aesthetic PP based StyLight introduced in 2019[2].
  • The virtual exhibition is complemented by the presentation of a commercialised helmet application utilizing a carbon/ glass fiber hybrid sheet for an optimised cost/ performance ratio.
