Transportation components design: Get the right lightweight, high strength and recyclable material

The market of transportation components and parts is challenged by the growing requirement for high performance and lightweight elements, driven in large part by regulatory, sustainability pressure and fuel efficiency demands. 


However, the reduced weight should not come with a compromise on other properties like stiffness or processability. Today it exists a wide range of solutions likely to replace metal while insuring an acceptable level of strength. 


One pioneering self-reinforced material proposes a new combination of lightweight and strength, while insuring impact resistance and aesthetic possibilities. It also offers the advantage of complete recyclability.

Support new mobility challenges: find new smart materials for ergonomic, light and durable parts!

We all know that traffic is a problem in cities, pollution issues should be resolved as soon as possible and safety could be improved. These drawbacks have been existed for too much time now and fifty years ago, the believe was we would be moving with flying car in the 2000’s! It seems that this innovation will be few years late but breakthrough innovations will happen very soon.

Indeed, researches, surveys and R&D from vehicles companies have confirmed the mobility will be revolutionized. The vehicles will be autonomous, will use electrical energy and the approach around a vehicle will also change: we will be more likely to buy mobility when needed instead of owning a vehicle.

These solutions aim at solving urgent problems like cities congestion, population increase and pollution. It will also respond to new consumption habits by managing human and good transports differently. 

While the challenges around mobility have been clearly identified, the struggle is found in solutions availability and our role is to make innovation happen thanks to our platform to enable exchanges between needs and solutions.
