Lightweight construction through plastic/hybrid parts
The share of plastics in automobile construction is increasing constantly because often it is possible to replace heavy steel parts with plastic parts or plastic/metal compositions (hybrid parts). In this way, we support the automotive industry in the integration of lightweight construction – with solutions that exhibit a high level of functionality and first-class surfaces. In doing this, it is necessary to provide optimal attachment to the chassis and ensure low tolerances in the part's overall composition.

For colored exterior components, our surface specialists enable us to guarantee colors which identically-match those of the chassis – either through extrusion of plastic already in the vehicle's color or by a separate paint process performed with our sophisticated painting technology.
