Composite Materials for Automotive and Industrial Applications

In response to tighter CO² emission controls, automobile manufacturers seek lightweight materials to increase efficiency. Auto design leaders have discovered composites offer a 30% lighter structure compared to aluminum, and 70% lighter compared to steel. Toray’s materials offer corrosion resistance, high strength and stiffness, weight reduction, high volume production capabilities, low waste, and performance improvement for these extreme applications.
