Auf der JEC World 2019 zeigt Covestro endlosfaserverstärkte thermoplastische Composites (CFRTPs). Sie können mit Carbon- (links) oder Glasfasern verstärkt sein und verleihen den daraus hergestellten Teilen eine hohe Festigkeit bei geringem Gewicht.
At JEC World 2019 Covestro will present continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites (CFRTP). They can be reinforced with carbon (left) or glass fibers and lend parts made thereof low weight yet high strength.
During JEC World 2020 trade fair in Paris (3-5 March), Covestro will be presenting innovative and sustainable material solutions for various industries. One important application is lightweight and robust components for vehicles that reduce fuel consumption and emissions, or increase the range of electric cars.
High strength, low weight and efficient production techniques are making composites increasingly popular. Covestro has developed a wide range of thermoplastic polycarbonate and thermoset polyurethane composites, and has thereby become a leading supplier.
For the newly designed wheels of the SUVs ES8 und ES6 the Chinese electric vehicle SUV start-up NIO uses thermoplastic composites of the Maezio brand from Covestro.
Working in close cooperation with its customers and partners, Covestro has expanded the range of applications for its composites from pultruded profiles and facade mounting elements, to large rotor blades for wind turbines, miniaturized electronic components and sports articles which can be produced in large quantities with short cycle times.
Covestro has developed a new composite technology. This new technology makes it possible to manufacture really thin, lightweight, high-strength aesthetic parts based on CFRTP on an industrial scale. These parts are marketed under the Maezio brand.
One such example of an application is the redesigned wheels of the ES8 and ES6 SUVs of the renowned Chinese electric car start-up NIO. At K 2019, Covestro presented decorative wheel blades which were made of CFRTP composites with which the wheels can be optionally equipped.
A similar innovation was an ultra-thin robust table that Covestro developed with partners as part of a new car interior concept and showcased at K 2019. The table needs only minimal design space and is notable for its impressive aesthetics and surface finish.
At JEC Word 2020, in addition to the innovative thermoplastic composites, Covestro plans to present a particle foam derived from expanded polycarbonate (EPC). This material is recyclable and can be used in high-quality lightweight construction applications.
