Accelerating metal replacement in cars
At a time when the automotive industry is faced with severe lightweighting challenges, the ability to manufacture complex shapes using alternative materials to metal is key.
The problem is finding the right materials that possess mechanical and thermal resistance comparable to that of metal, while offering at the same time the design flexibility to create highly complex and organic geometries that also meet the rate and process flexibility expected by automotive manufacturers.
The solution can be found in combining thermoplastic composite materials and injection molding processes. Solvay’s Evolite™ PPA thermoplastic composites were developed specifically for automotive functional applications.
