The exhibition will be replete with high-tech, energy-saving and environmentally friendly solutions for automotive industry by more than 1,500 exhibitors.

Lightweight and energy-saving

Polymer-based composites, thanks to their lightness, strength, moldability, elasticity, and corrosion resistance, play an important role in producing lightweight vehicles. Employing composites in the making of structural parts and coverings can reduce weights by about 30 per cent.

“Targeted Nano Enhancement Technology” will be showcased at Chinaplas 2018 to achieve thin-wall and lightweight goals.

DSM’s Stanyl HGR2 PA46 resin is powered by a 5.0L V8 engine, providing enhanced wear and friction performance. Environmental benefits include reductions in gas consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

In order to achieve "green" automotive manufacturing, new equipment and processing technology are crucial.

MuCell injection significantly reduces the weight of the parts and shortens molding cycle, improving the buckling deformation of parts and dimensional stability. MuCell is widely used in the automotive industry.

The benefits of Nordson Xaloy Polycarbonate Injection Molding System are excellent optical clarity and significantly reduced black specking, resulting in higher productivity and minimal waste. Applications include automotive lighting, spectacles, and data storage device etc.

According to studies, respectively 18 per cent and 15 per cent car owners in China are mainly concerned about their vehicles' external appearance and interior decor. They are also conscious of odours inside cars, and this mindfulness is proportional to the price of the car.

Cabot China Investment Co., Ltd. will debut a near-odorless masterbatch for auto application. The bluish undertone provides excellent aesthetic elegance. This masterbatch is for effective coloration and retain good physical properties in the final product, and ensure high glossy surface.
