New regulations on corporate average fuel economy in the US, and China, as well as CO2 emissions in Europe require the global automotive industry to substantially reduce vehicle weight in the near future. Furthermore, the additional weight of electric batteries needs to be compensated with lightweight materials.
In the search for weight reduction, carbon fibre reinforced composites can offer the best solution.
Delta-Preg materials are widely used by high-end automotive OEMs. In particular, Delta prepregs are qualified for the production of carbon-look parts, class A body panels and structural parts.
