Covestro’s Maezio Composites Reinvent the Wheel

September 09 2019

Due to their unidirectional carbon fiber optics and a high-quality surface offered by the polycarbonate matrix, Maezio continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites from Covestro bring a new tool to automotive designers’ toolbox for designing unique appearances. One case in point: they have given the ES8 and ES6, the all-electric SUVs from Chinese Electric Vehicle startup NIO, a boost on the wheels. At the K 2019 plastics trade fair from October 16-23 in Düsseldorf Covestro will present wheel blades made from this material.

Maezio composites bring to the table a combination of a unique appearance with unidirectional carbon fiber optics and a wide variety of finishing options. Because of their thermoplastic matrix system, Maezio composites can be easily joined with functional components during processing, e.g., through back injection molding.

Maezio composites can be cut and remelted for reuse at the end of life, or reground into short fiber compounds and used in an injection molding process, making them a sustainable material choice for EV manufacturers to further improve their sustainability scorecard.
