This week, I welcome Paul Hassett, the Market Development Manager at Covestro, North America. He joins me on the show to discuss the benefits of Covestro's Maezio® thermoplastic composites.
These composites combine high mechanical strength with premium aesthetics and ultra-lightweight performance. They also boast versatile processing options for production at scale thanks to compatibility with several production technologies including thermal compression molding, automated tape laying (ATL), automated fiber placement (AFP), and functional integration by injection molding.
These composite materials are characterized by their unique, metal-like surface immediately after production, which is also compatible with a wide range of coating and embellishment options.
Also, unique textures, logos, and other details are possible, making structural parts more aesthetically appealing.
We'll be discussing some of the product applications these materials are now being used in.
