The high quality and safety standards in modern auto- motive engineering are requiring stringent demands on the materials which are being used in automotive applications where the application performance requirements are critical. Formpoly® Polyamide grades offer a high thermal stability, dynamic strength, impact resistance and long-term performance. Starflam® engineering compounds fulfill the necessary flame-retardant requirements to ensure necessary safety compliances in electrical components especially with new trends for battery applications and integrated structures.

Technical properties of Formpoly® compounds can be combined uniquely with modern design concepts in today’s changing automotive industry trends especially from Hybrid vehicles to All electric Cars. The broad functionality of Formpoly® Polyamide & Polypropylene grades have a great potential for the economically optimized production of structural components and modules. Automotive requirements such as lightweight construction, integration of components with different polymers for system solutions, recyclability, structural requirements & aesthetics show the superiority of Formpoly® in comparison with conventional materials.
