PP foams for ultra-lightweight Automotive applications

Free on-demand webinar

Recording of live webinar from 15 October 2020

Duration: 40 minutes

Catch-22 for the Automotive industry

The global ambition to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is requiring cars to become more energy efficient and sustainable – a big challenge looking at where we are coming from:

  • Over the last decades consumer preferences and passenger safety regulations have resulted in a gradual increase of the average car weight.
  • Technological advances in the areas of powertrain, suspension and aerodynamics only partially compensate the negative effect of increasing weight on fuel efficiency
  • New trends like CASE (connected – autonomous – shared – electrified) are adding further components and hence weight to cars

It is time to reverse this trend!

Are you looking for cost efficient possibilities to reduce the weight of automotive parts without compromising quality and safety?

Is your company striving to contribute to a more sustainable mobility?

Join this webinar to learn about reducing vehicle weight with ultra-lightweight foam solutions.
