About

The trend for making cars lighter is gathering momentum as the European Union is placing increasing pressure on car makers to reduce CO2 emissions. Car companies have made big gains in engine and fuel management technology but now need to focus on reducing car weight if they are to meet tougher emissions targets.
 
Plastics have for a long time been substituting metal in car interior and exterior applications and under the hood. Now they are being considered for structural parts, such as load-bearing units and even the chassis.
 
This development is still at an early stage. Most composites are carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP), where a thermoset epoxy, not a thermoplastic, is the most common base plastic. Manufacturing cycle times for car parts made with these CFRP materials are often many minutes long, due to the need for post-curing and other limitations. Thermoplastics reinforced with carbon fibre may offer the best route to achieve this aim as well as achieving greater recyclability and greater part integration with other thermoplastic components.
 
European Plastics News' Automotive Thermoplastic Composites conference takes place at an exciting time as these technologies are developed further and may soon start appearing in production vehicles. The event will show case polymer producers, technology companies, injection moulders and mould makers that have started developments that they hope to commercialise.

Automotive Thermoplastic Composites will be co-located with the highly successful Under the Hood Conference.

Book your place today to meet high-level executives involved in various aspects of the automotive plastics market.
