Transit owners are not immune to the financial strain of rising gas prices. The bottom line is important, and using less fuel means saving money on operating costs.
Heavier vehicles require more fuel and are therefore more expensive to run. Thatís why our R&D team is focused on helping our customers shed pounds. We provide manufacturers with more ways to use lighter materials, whether itís during the design phase or by replacing existing components. Our systems offer weight savings of up to 50 percent over conventional metals, while maintaining key strength requirements. Our composite flooring and body panels provide weight savings throughout interior and exterior structures. With our engineering plastics and lightweight composite systems, manufacturers can meet industry demands for energy efficiency, lower emissions, and can improve fuel performance.
