Composite for Automotive

Hexion has made a new three-year agreement with the Fraunhofer Project Center to continue to work jointly for the development of lightweight composite technologies and high-performance systems designed to meet the demand of mass production of autos. Use of new composite technologies helps in replacing the steel and other heavier materials for lightweighting the vehicles.

Hexion, a leading global manufacturer of thermoset resins and the Center, have been in collaboration since 2013 on developing high-performance materials and processing technologies to automotive manufacturers to enable them to fabricate lighter-weight, higher-strength parts, reducing overall vehicle weight and improving gas mileage and performance. The collaboration has been successful in the commercial use of composite materials.

Stephen Greydanus, Hexion’s manager of automotive application development and technical support, said, “This new agreement enables us to continue our work with the Center to support applications development using high volume composite manufacturing technologies. As automakers seek to lighten vehicle weights, using new composite technologies to replace steel and other heavier materials is increasingly critical to vehicle design and production.”

The Center enables Hexion to work with major automotive manufacturers for testing of materials and producing parts at full production-scale. Hexion engineers focus on helping automakers develop, test and integrate the latest technologies and materials into their new vehicles. A network of prototype specialists, tool makers and testing firms also work with Hexion and the Center in this work. Working with the Center, Hexion has perfected rapid cycle time production of large parts for heat-resistant under-hood applications.
