Owens Corning, BASF and TenCate Partner for Thermoplastic Automotive Composites

Owens Corning recently announced its inclusion in a strategic alliance with BASF and TenCate Advanced Composites. The goal of the alliance is to develop optimal solutions in thermoplastic composites for automotive mass production.

“There is a critical and growing need in the automotive industry to have lighter, stronger and more environmentally efficient products,” said Arnaud Genis, group president for Owens Corning. “Glass fiber solutions are not fully leveraged, and by combining the talent and resources of Owens Corning, BASF and TenCate—all industry leaders—we will be able to take significant weight out and find the optimum solutions for our customers quickly, and with the highest quality design and structure.”

In this strategic alliance, BASF contributes comprehensive knowledge in the production and formulation of thermoplastic resins, TenCate Advanced Composites brings its expertise in composites manufacturing, and Owens Corning brings the technology to develop superior and tailor-made fabrics and glass reinforcement solutions.
