Smarter composites


Making things smarter

The transition to electric vehicles is well underway: there are over 100 different plug-in or hybrid cars currently on sale in the UK, with many more on the way. Versatile, high performance composites play a key role in making EVs practical, safe and better for the environment. Their light-weighting capability offsets the weight of battery packs, extending usable range. They provide strong, fire-resistant battery cases. Recycled and bio-materials improve sustainability, while stronger-than-steel thermoplastics are cutting the carbon footprint of commercial vehicle production.
