Roof frames using plastic/metal hybrid technology
Compared to a steel solution, the component is 30% lighter and costs the same Front ends using hybrid technology
Front ends using hybrid technology
Plastic/metal hybrid technology front ends are around 10-40% lighter than full metal front ends; the weight of hybrid aluminum front ends can be further reduced with Tepex® inserts. Hybrid front ends made from plastic and metal are already widely used; as plastic bonds well with Tepex®, the weight can be reduced even further.
Injection-molded inserts made from glass-fiber-reinforced PA6 enable substantial weight reduction and increased passenger protection
Spare wheel wells made from 60% glass-fiber-reinforced plastic
The component is glued directly to the bare bodywork and not only carries the spare wheel and on-board tools, but also stiffens the rear part of the vehicle
