At present, polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), ABS resin and engineering plastics and alloy materials have been used in the field of automotive applications. It is expected that 2012 to 2015, the application of nanocomposites, sprayable and spray-free plastics, plastic lenses and plastic glass, and fiber-reinforced thermoplastics will be fully exploited in automotive materials.
At the same time, the increasingly serious environmental problems and the regulation of carbon emissions, but also to car manufacturers more and more attention to the development of automotive plastics. Plastic in the automotive industry, not only can reduce vehicle fuel consumption and weight, to achieve environmental sustainability, but also improve the design flexibility and security. Typical applications include the use of automotive components such as baffles, fenders, airbags and seat belts. In addition to high environmental sustainability, high-performance automotive plastics also have a strong design flexibility and operational safety. At present, automotive plastics in the bumper, engine cover, airbags and seat belts and other parts are widely used. The integration of high-performance plastic not only can reduce the weight, but also play a shock absorption, wear-resistant role, so as to better extend the life of the car.
