Fibrotape UD tapes, laminates and Honeycomb Thermopostic Composite advanced composite materials can be used to design lightweight, high impact and strong materials for high performance automotive applications.
Especially polyamide and polypropylene based continuous glass or carbon fiber reinforced UD tapes are well suited to Automotive interior and exterior applications.
Fibrotape UD tapes are a promising alternative to woven-fiber reinforced organosheets which can be used to orient the fibers in any load direction, enabling to manufacture load-specific components ata minimum scrap rate .
Fibrotape –GF PP series is designed for sandwich panels and laminated panels used in automotive interior parts.
Fibrotape with continuous fiber reinforced composites is especially ideal for large parts due to its unique characteristics that greatly reduce the overall cost to produce the optimized preform within the cycle time of the compression injection molding (60 to 90 seconds) or offer cost reduction reducing with material thicknesses as a result of weigth reduction.
- Low investmen tcost for tooling and economic processing
- Excellent toughness behaviour
- Excellent tensile properties
- Able to laminate PET NW, needle punch, carpet,
- Good acoustic absorption
- Ductile failure - robust handling
- Very high stiffness
- Light weight
- Absorption of crash loads
Some of application in serial:
Fibrotape UD tape with PP honeycomb core lamination, instead of Bypreg- PU+carton Honeycomb core + glass fiber
- Lightweight potential weight reduction min 20 %.
- Recyclable design
- Volume gaining on the luggage compartment ( current material was 17 mm thickness, proposal structure 10 mm) .
- Reducing the cycle time %50 improvenet, and low investment cost in serial
- One processing for forming and carpet lamination
One step thermoforming process for forming and laminating
