Lightweighting

 

Making sure vehicles are as light as they can be makes economic sense. During the design phase, we use advanced simulation technology to help designers determine how to reduce the number of component parts and to consider where they can use plastic materials to reduce weight.

 

We’re helping manufacturers lighten their load with our range of lightweighting solutions. Our engineering plastics solutions can offer a weight savings of up to 50 percent over conventional metals, while maintaining key strength requirements. Our lightweight composite systems weigh far less than traditional marine-grade plywood, helping manufacturers meet industry demands for energy efficiency and improved fuel performance, providing weight savings throughout interior and exterior structures. At the same time, our systems help maintain the aesthetic qualities and ergonomics of the design.

 

Shedding pounds means leaner fleets, lower costs and a healthier balance sheet.
