How can we help you?

We take a scientific approach to building solutions.

Our dedicated teams work closely with our customers to look at the entire process of developing new parts and components – whether it is a case of metal replacement, or developing solutions that are stronger, safer and more effective.

Our methodical approach extends to every step of the process, from design and material performance to production and compliance.

  • Downsizing & Miniaturization

    Downsizing & Miniaturization

    As our economy places more focus on efficiency, industry is responding by creating products that are thinner, lighter, and smaller – with the same or more functionality.

  • Narrow tolerances

    Narrow tolerances

    In the ongoing quest to do more with less, some automotive applications prove more challenging than others.

  • Strength, stiffness & fatigue

    Strength, stiffness & fatigue

    As car manufacturers continuously focus on reducing weight to improve fuel efficiency, replacing metal parts with plastic remains a key challenge.

  • Cost reduction & simplification

    Cost reduction & simplification

    Plastics offer a solution that is lighter in weight than metal and rubber. In addition, plastics enable the production of parts with complex geometries, meaning its possible to convert a number of components into a single, simplified part.

  • UD Tapes: Light weighting through composites

    A family of polyamide-based UD tapes with endless carbon or glass fiber reinforcements are light weight alternatives to metals in several automotive applications. UD tapes, tape-based 2D fabrics, and cross plies are used in structural and semi-structural applications, and in the selective reinforcement of injection molded parts.
