AUTOMOTIVE

The automotive industry is globally driven by environmental and safety standards and requires increased longevity due to extended warranty and lower costs of production. Consumers are demanding less frequent maintenance, more comfortable driving experiences, and better fuel economy, with no deterioration in performance.

The reduction of the vehicle weight, driven by the desire for lower CO2 emissions and improved mileage, results into miniaturization of components and functional integration which are at the forefront of the automotive industry’s efforts. Subsequently OEMs are forced to identify materials that provide enhanced performance and efficiency, offer high specific strength and lower weight and enable more economic component solutions.

The demand for smaller components with an improved reliability made from lighter materials that withstand a higher temperature range and have an excellent strength as well as flow characteristics has increased. This demand can be met by producing thinner-walled parts made from high performance thermoplastics.

Industry standards dictate that materials today need to perform at 120°C – 180°C whereas years ago temperature requirements were about 100°C – 120°C. With these requirements in mind it may not be feasible to use metal or traditional general purpose plastics in such hostile environments, where even light alloys show a loss in mechanical strength at temperature ranges around 200°C.
