Nowadays fibre composite materials are considered an innovation driver in the whole automotive business segment. Due to their outstanding mechanical properties they enable lightweight constructions in automotive engineering and offer various possibilities for developing technical solutions in the vehicle safety sector. The use of fibre composite materials in the interior enables individual possibilities regarding design and shaping, which ultimately contributes to a considerably enhanced value of the interior.

A classic example for the use of fibre composite material in the automotive industry is racing. Here the vast potential of carbon fibre enhanced epoxy resin is used.

But also the mass production of automotive components offers a range of examples, such as the production of leaf springs and cladding parts for lorries, the production of exterior walls for campers or cladding parts for cars.
