Composites Assists Lightweight Construction in Automotive


With its broad portfolio for the composites segment, BYK Additives & Instruments, as among the leading manufacturers of additives and measuring instruments for the plastics and coatings industry, is to be represented at K 2016 in Düsseldorf, where it will be showcasing some highly interesting solutions for the automotive industry, for instance - from October 19 to 26, 2016 in Hall 5, Stand E 17, over approx. 150 m2 floor space.

High-performance composites assist current lightweight construction developments in the automotive industry in a sustainable way. BYK additives play a major part in this. They can be used in composites consisting of both thermoset-based and thermoplastic-based materials. BYK additives from the SCONA range, for example, improve the use of carbon fibers in composites - made of polypropylene or polyamide, etc. - and thus enable optimum technical solutions to be found for high-end car bodies. The main advantages are significantly lighter lightweight structures, improved mechanical properties and, as a result, considerably reduced emissions.
