Our broad portfolio of materials enables manufacturers of medical devices, fabrics and packaging to design for the future, developing new, innovative options that perform better than what was available before.
The quest among automobile manufacturers to reduce vehicle weight is driving an expanding use of advanced plastics in increasingly harsh and demanding environments. The need for new solutions has never been greater, and that need is not likely to disappear.
Sintered metal gears are being replaced with high-performance plastic gears in automobiles because the demand to lightweight vehicles and increase fuel efficiency is far from just a trend—it is driven by meeting new and upcoming legislation to reduce emissions.
Much of the evolution in the automotive industry is focused on fuel efficiency and reducing under the hood space, therefore there is an increased use of turbocharging systems, plus, vehicles are being designed to maximize passenger space, increase pedestrian impact protection and decrease noise related capsulation.
