Published on 2013-03-18. Author : SpecialChem

At the VDI conference "Plastics in Automotive Engineering," LANXESS focused its presentation on the outstanding opportunities in car production offered by lightweight design with polyamide and PBT compounds. "Whether we are talking about electric, hybrid or gas-powered cars, or even low-consumption diesel vehicles, high-tech thermoplastic materials have become indispensable for all concepts of sustainable mobility. They are a lightweight alternative to metals and, in many cases, also to thermoset systems," explained Dr. Martin Wanders.
