Materials for More Durable Body Panels
Body panels present significant challenges for vehicle manufacturers as the industry continues to shift to meet lightweighting trends. While body panels must be light in weight, they are also subject to high safety standards that require stiff and strong materials. Additionally, body panels are exposed to a wide range of environmental conditions that deteriorate exterior components over time. Modern body panels must meet crash and safety performance regulations, structural integration, UV durability, and design flexibility. Leading OEMs need versatile composites designed for a wide range of applications.
With over 20 years of premium materials for body panel systems supply, manufacturers and OEMs trust Solvay’s portfolio of solutions.
