Carbon Core Structural Components


Carbon fiber-reinforced fast-cure epoxy and high-pressure RTM and liquid compression molding (LCM) are used to produce 27 CFRP parts for the vehicle's mixed-material BIW structure to support production volumes of 80,000+ vehicles/year. The HP-RTM roof arc follows the shapes of the car body and offers an outstanding weight/performance ratio. The LCM tunnel reinforcement improves the vehicle's torsional stiffness and is produced in <1 min. These "carbon core" parts replace metal, improve stiffness, ride/handling, and safety while reducing vehicle mass 40 kg for better fuel efficiency and tailpipe emissions.
