High-tech plastics have a great future: Many companies in the automotive industry in particular, but also in the electrical and construction industries, are making increasing use of these innovative materials developed in laboratories. The benefits of high-tech plastics are plain for all to see. These lightweight materials offer greater flexibility and open up a whole host of new design options. They also make a valuable contribution to protecting the climate and the environment.
Growth in the use of high-tech plastics is particularly marked in cars. One of the primary benefits of high-tech plastics is that they make cars lighter by replacing metal parts that are many times heavier. Less weight means lower fuel consumption and thus lower carbon dioxide emissions. This is kinder on the wallet and, above all, on the environment – a real recipe for success. High-tech plastics also play a key role in one of the automotive industry’s most important areas of activity for the future – the development of cutting-edge electric vehicles.
High-tech plastics are also becoming increasingly important beyond the automotive industry. They are already found in a whole host of applications. The prospects for the future are excellent since high-tech plastics are just as versatile and promising as the new solutions we are pinning our hopes on in many areas of life.
