Traditional composite materials share spotlight with carbon fiber in lightweighting

09/18/2013 |

Conventional composite materials are benefiting from innovations despite the recent focus on increasing carbon-fiber components in vehicles, according to this analysis. In particular, reduced processing times have been achieved for urethane composites, along with more expansive lightweighting applications. "If you look at some of the early products and compare it, we've almost cut processing time in half," said Michael Super, a business development manager at Bayer MaterialScience.
