ABSTRACT
According to a research conducted at the Warwick University in Warwickshire, England, the lightweight structural automotive components could be volume-produced from thermoplastic composites. Components made using the technique could also be easily recycled and researchers believe car makers could start adopting the process on new models within the next year. The project named "Advanced Polymeric Composite Panels With Low Environmental Impact" is part of the Dept. of Trade and Industry-backed Foresight Vehicle programme and is a collaboration between Warwick's Advanced Technology Center and Midlands based BI Composites and Security Composites.
