Composite materials have become widely used in automotive applications because of their high strength, corrosion resistance and low weight –

 

Composite materials are used in a number of applications within the transportation sector from body panels, radiators and ignition components on passenger vehicles, to the side panels on light- and heavy-duty trucks. The benefits of using composites include greater fuel efficiency, corrosion resistance, low weight and high strength. Composites also provide a cost effective way to develop innovative, contemporary designs.
