material is used in a number of applications in the automotive industry due to its temperature resistance, rigidity and fatigue strength. The benefits of using composites include greater fuel efficiency, corrosion resistance, light weight and strength. Composites also provide a low-cost way to help keep designs looking fresh.
Composites are used in:
- interior parts (cockpit, trimming, seats, instrument panels)
- exterior structure (body panels, openings, underbody, front/rear modules)
- engine compartment and fuel/mechanical area parts (axles and suspensions, fuel and exhaust systems)
- electrical and electronic components
