Polyamide, polyester displace SMC in modular truck bumper

Monday, April 15th, 2013 | Permalink

Bumpers for trucks and heavy goods vehicles are being increasingly manufactured from thermoplastics. Unlike previous models, these bumpers are no longer produced as a single piece from sheet molding compounds (SMC). Instead, they are manufactured on a modular basis from several components, consisting of, for example, polyamide and polyester compounds from Lanxess (Leverkusen, Germany). This reportedly enables easier repair. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites read more
