Lightweight Plastic Parts for Automotive Heavyweights
Plastic parts and components are known to reduce costs and boost efficiencies in many industries – but nowhere are the advantages of plastics more evident than in the automotive industry. Plastics offer increased fuel efficiency, improved corrosion resistance, greater design flexibility, superior durability, higher performance and lower costs. Remarkably malleable, plastics are also strong enough to hold their structure and shape. In fact, plastics now constitute approximately half of the total parts in today’s cars and trucks.
