Under-The-Hood Applications

Regulations regarding the reduction of CO2 emissions and car noise levels have been significantly pushing the demand for new and innovative lightweight materials as a substitute for metal and aluminum parts. At the same time these materials have to live up to the high safety standards in the automotive industry, and to provide solutions to the changing and tightening regulations worldwide. Engineering plastics with their broad range of properties will become a key in this field, contributing to a reduction of CO2 emissions of conventional passenger cars with an internal combustion engine.

• Alternator Housing
• Bumper Enforcement
• Charge air cooler
• Charge air duct
• Coolant Hose Connectors
• Cylinder Head Cover
• ECU/Fuse/Relay Housing

Interior Applications

Lightweight materials will significantly add to the future automotive. From the manufacturer’s point of view lightweight materials are first and foremost a key factor to achieve the CO2 fleet emission goals. At the same time they contribute to a better range or fuel efficiency – without compromising safety.

From the user’s point of view lightweight itself is no emotional experience. Especially when used in the interior of the car, human senses come into play. The materials should not smell, appeal to the eye and – due to the rising popularity of car sharing – also withstand intense use by many different users. With the automotive interior becoming a living space, the materials should contribute to make the car user feel as comfortable as possible.
