High performance compounds lower CO2 emissions from motor vehicles

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Today it is difficult to imagine modern automobiles without plastics. They are used in interiors, for bumpers and body parts and even in heavy duty components found under the bonnet. Thanks to their low weight and integrated functions, these materials make a decisive contribution to building vehicles that are increasingly powerful yet also low on consumption.

The increasingly stringent requirements being placed on materials in this field can only be met by means of modification with efficient reinforcing substances such as carbon fibres, incorporated lubricants and nanoadditives. And the large number of fields of applications placing a wide range of different requirements on the components means that it is essential to adapt materials to the specific application.

LUVOCOM high performance compounds offer users all the options. Selective utilisation of additives enables high performance materials to be manufactured for use in applications such as intake modules, the start-stop function, oil pumps, sensors, actuator drives and friction bearings. The LUVOCOM team provides support in parts design and material specification. Customers thus receive tailor-made compounds of agreed quality specially adapted to their requirements for the manufacture of first parts and entire series. Users can also take advantage of a large range of existing materials.
