Replacing metals with composites is a natural step in the modern and sustainable development of new products.
Replacing metal components with composites helps protect the environment. Less energy is required to heat composites, transport costs will fall due to the lower density of composites which gives weight savings, no after or surface treatment is required – and the product is finished when it leaves the injection-mould. Composites also have higher sound-absorption qualities than metals. Design and construction are also important and with our knowledge and suppliers, we create solutions together with our customers.
AD-Plast works with customer projects that focus on metal replacement. We can now replace aluminium, zinc, brass and magnesium.
Benefits of composites:
• Low wear
• Fatigue resistant
• High rigidity at high temperatures
• Oil-resistant at high temperatures
• Weight savings compared to metals
• Sound-absorbing qualities
• Tolerates constantly high temperatures
• Tolerates harsh loading conditions
• Design freedom
• Function integration
• Environmental aspects
• Low production costs
