High Performance Carbon Composite Strut

A standard steel strut was replaced by a pultruded composite strut with bonded metal joining elements, improving NVH, eliminating corrosion concerns, and optimizing the specific stiffness/weight ratio while reducing mass 45%. The 50K tow unidirectional carbon fiber-reinforced epoxy also features an insulating fiberglass layer to prevent stone chipping and provide galvanic protection. The cost-effective application produces no scrap and is being used on medium-volume vehicles (up to 30,000/year).
