Innovative Plastics for Lightweighting of Semi-­Structural Applications

Trinseo Automotive offers high-performance systems of polypropylene long-glass-fiber (PP LGF) and glass-filled (GF) alloys to meet the increased need for semi-structural, lightweight parts without higher cost or a loss of technical performance.

The automotive industry is facing regulations to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. A continuous reduction of part weight based on cost-competitive solutions is a necessity to meet the challenges of future automotive business. Advanced plastics solutions from Trinseo are able to replace heavier metal components for semi-structural applications, such as door modules, instrument panels, tailgates, front end carriers, or structural seating components.

With innovative systems like our ENLITE™ Structural Polymers family, you are able to save significant weight and cost – while maintaining, or even improving, the key performance of your semi-structural applications (e.g., stiffness, dimensional stability, and thermal resistance).
