Exterior/powertrain

Polymer composites offer a clear lightweight alternative to metals, giving themthe potential to help the automotive industry reduce environmental impact and increase profitability. Exterior and powertrain applications for trucks must sustain roughusage with extreme durability at all times.

Our collaboration with Inxide AB on X-TECH™ enables us to offer lightweight structural components. X-TECH™ combines the reinforcing capabilities of continuous fibre reinforcement, such as RTM and tape laying, with the high-rate complex forming capability of conventional injection or compression moulding.
