Enter the new world of composites
BASF thermoplastic composite materials are replacing metal and hybrid components in seating area components, door side-impact beams, cross-car beams, brake pedals, steering-column holders, airbag modules, and front ends.
Using Ultracom™—an integrated system that incorporates semi-finished products, injection-molding compounds and engineering support—BASF is expanding its activities in the field of engineering plastics.
This ranges from concept phase and design, via simulation and processing through to parts testing in order to enable efficient volume production at the customer's facility. With Ultracom, automotive structural parts can be designed with optimized cost and weight.
