The ride is lighter despite the heavy loads

Ultra performing composites

Automotive applications strive to reduce weight without compromising consistent rigidity. Weight reduction of course brings significant reduction of energy consumption and increased weight capacity. Local modern urban traffic solutions or electric cars benefit from sandwich constructions: less energy and electricity consumption while the range gets wider.

Our products and technologies help to protect the environment, save resources and reduce operating costs for various applications in automotive: passenger cars, recreational vehicles, trucks, buses and special purpose vehicles so, come and ride with us!

Advantages of our core materials

  • Great potential for weight reduction (lower fuel consumption, higher weight capacity)
  • Low total operating costs
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • Good thermal insulating properties
  • Easy processing
  • Thermal formability
  • High corrosion resistance
  • Global availability
  • Sustainability and recyclability
