NEW MATERIAL WILL REDUCE WEIGHTS IN THE VEHICLE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
Repsol, a supplier of Erum plastic products, has presented a new type of material at the international congress “Plastics in Vehicle Engineering”.
This new polypropylene composite was developed in conjunction with Grupo Antonlín and 3M, and is based on combining traditional loads and hollow glass microspheres. It is designed to significantly reduce the weight of injected parts, which have the same mechanical properties with this type of materials: flexibility and scratch resistance.
The material meets the specific needs of the vehicle manufacturing sector, offering a solution to the growing demand for lighter vehicles, with an excellent finish and superior mechanical properties.
