Automotive Plastics: 2024 Material Innovations for Light-weight ICEs & Emerging EVs

17 Day(s) left to register

Thursday Jun 6, 2024

Ease your automotive plastic material selection for ICEs and EVs by gaining insights on the latest plastics resins, composites, additives… innovations in EVs as well as internal combustion engine vehicles. Understand the current challenges as well as opportunities for OEMs by reviewing the changing landscape of consumer attitudes, product availability, electronic vehicles economics, and regulatory tailwinds.

Dr. Donald will share latest key automotive plastics materials innovations. To name a few:

  • New flame retardants designed to help automotive engineers advance both safety and performance.
  • New materials that offer an alternative plastic sheet extrusion, thermoforming process technology and more(injection molding, metal forming, compression) that can be used in EVs
  • Newly commercially introduced 11KiloWatt (KW) wireless Electric Vehicle (EV) charging system

Why should you attend?

Faced with stringent fuel-economy and emissions policies, OEMs are adopting the use of lighter weight materials in automotive components and parts, along with part optimization/consolidation & the use of innovative processes.

Additionally, regulations in major car markets like China, the European Union, and the United States… compel OEMs to produce more EVs with rising interests in consumers as well.

However, the challenge is to achieve vehicle innovation goals without loss of performance or aesthetics as well as reduce cost. Moreover, material selection is affected by number of factors like formability, assembly methods, paint technologies, corrosion protection requirements, cost per unit of weight saved…

Join this course and:

  • Speed up your R&D decisions with an understanding of the latest EV & ICEs automotive materials innovations (Fiber reinforced plastic composites, ultra-low-density SMC advances, plastic-metal and organic hybrid technology…) and applications landscape.
  • Better select automotive materials (plastics/composites) by understanding the analysis of how energy, design & interior challenges translate into difficulty in addressing materials.
  • Improve profitability by learning about strategies to reduce cost such as decontenting, optimizing urban range, battery leasing etc.

Who should attend?

Plastic resin manufacturers, additive suppliers intending to understand the latest automotive materials innovations & realize how their materials fit into that landscape.

Compounders, OEM looking to better select resins/ additives… to reach latest automotive innovation goals without losing on performance as well as reduce overall costs.

Brand Owners who wish to get a holistic view of major players, market drivers, current challenges & technology advances.
