WHY REPLACE METALS WITH PLASTICS?

High-performing plastics and plastic materials have revolutionized the performance, safety, construction, and functionality of sustainable vehicles. Plastics contribute to more energy efficiency, mainly due to weight reduction, along with corrosion resistance, design flexibility, and durability. Essentially, plastics provide enhanced safety and performance while lowering manufacturing costs.

  • Reduces Weight of Cars—Makes cars lighter while reducing fuel demands and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Excellent Machinability—Can be formed and molded into various shapes and sizes while keeping tolerances and not cracking or breaking. Also, moldable and formed plastics provide designers the ability to design more aerodynamic body panels.
  • Lightweight but Strong—Lightweight but offers structurally stable material solutions with excellent mechanical and impact strength.
  • Contribute to Car Safety—Plastics play a crucial role in car safety and can be found in bumpers, seat belts, airbags, child-restraint seats, and much more.
  • Lower Car Manufacturing Costs—Single-mold car part and components help decrease vehicle assembly time while allowing design innovations at lower costs than metals.
  • Help Advance Design of Vehicles—Plastics contribute to exciting innovations in the automotive industry, including key components in alternative-energy vehicles, including electric and hybrid.
  • More Ecofriendly Option—Not only do plastics contribute to lower fuel demands and greenhouse gas emissions, plastic vehicle parts are recyclable.
