Glass fibre for the XXIst century vehicles
There are no doubts that the ongoing change of paradigm from the XXth century Auto-Mobile to the XXIst century Eco-Auto-Mobility does call for eco-responsible, safer and more comfortable vehicles.
Optimized usage of resources, decrease in fuel consumption hence reduction of vehicle’s emissions, development of alternative energies to replace fossil fuels do definitely trigger the need for durable, lighter and more performing materials.
Innovative and cost effective glass fibres address efficiently to these challenges:
- the inherent mineral composition of glass fibre makes them extremely durable as well as resistant to high temperatures and to corrosion from most automotive fluids
- their specific mechanical performances and their versatility to be shaped in various forms open a large spectrum of tailored and optimized designed solutions that already over-perform traditional materials such as steel and aluminum as illustrated below.
Building on its leading edge expertise and convinced of the unlimited potential of glass reinforced composites, 3B is pushing the current composite boundaries to build the XXIst century vehicles.
