The existence of the car
for people's lives to provide a lot of convenient conditions, with the continuous innovation and development of science and technology, automotive models at the same time its manufacturing materials have a major breakthrough, both plastic materials gradually replace the traditional materials, automotive plastics not only to the maximum To meet the car
manufacturers on the special needs of parts, but also reduce processing costs and reduce fuel consumption, rapid progress in automotive manufacturing technology, will drive the growing demand for automotive plastics.
At the same time, the increasingly serious environmental problems and the regulation of carbon emissions, but also to car manufacturers more and more attention to the development of automotive plastics. Plastic in the automotive industry, not only can reduce vehicle fuel consumption and weight, to achieve environmental sustainability, but also improve the design flexibility and security. Typical applications include the use of automotive components such as baffles, fenders, airbags and seat belts. In addition to high environmental sustainability, high-performance automotive plastics also have a strong design flexibility and operational safety. At present, automotive plastics in the bumper, engine cover, airbags and seat belts and other parts are widely used. The integration of high-performance plastic not only can reduce the weight, but also play a shock absorption, wear-resistant role, so as to better extend the life of the car.
According to the International Mold Association Secretary-General Luo Baihui introduction, the current polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), ABS resin and engineering plastics and alloy materials have been in the field of automotive applications. It is expected that 2012 to 2015, the application of nanocomposites, sprayable and spray-free plastics, plastic lenses and plastic glass, and fiber-reinforced thermoplastics will be fully exploited in automotive materials.
In terms of cost, plastic auto parts are more cost-effective than traditional metal parts, although other units of metal materials are higher than the price of automotive plastics, but the latter is more feasible, can greatly reduce the processing, assembly and other late costs , In addition, with the future high-performance plastic in the automotive area of the use of its price will be further down.
Plastic as a new part of the material, not only can reduce the car's own weight, thereby reducing fuel consumption and reduce emissions, but also significantly reduce procurement costs, improve vehicle power and enhance its safety, and ultimately the car in both safety and cost performance Good performance. Needless to say, the application prospect of plastic in the car will be more and more broad.
The American Chemical Council (ACC) Plastics Chapter's new automotive plastic blueprint says the need for more display of plastic and polymer composite materials to expand the use of these materials in automotive applications. The organization released its first blueprint for automotive plastic planning in 2001, with the most recent update in 2009. The latest version, entitled "Blueprint for Automotive Plastics and Polymer Composites", aims to build a framework that increases the penetration of plastics and polymer composites in the automotive industry, with particular emphasis on weight loss applications and fuel efficiency standards The
With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, the automotive industry will be rapid development, which gave the car a rare opportunity for plastic, with a good market prospects, the enterprise R & D
need to make persistent efforts to continuously develop the potential of plastic raw materials, So that car with plastic has more competitive advantage, so as to make the automotive plastics market continues to grow and develop.
