Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. Co., Ltd. Summit Highlights Need for Lightweighting Powertrains in the Electric Future

May 21 2018

Industry experts gathered for the Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. ‘Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference’ in Gent, Belgium.

Attendees from the automotive industry’s best and brightest discussed the pressing need for lightweight parts in both internal combustion and electric motor-based drivetrains, and detailed how composites will be key to making this happen.

The switch to Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. plastics and materials in parts such as fuel pumps, electric motor housing and brake system parts is proven to dramatically slash weights and reduce costs.

Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 - and composites will be key to making this happen.

This was the key message delivered at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organized by thermoset plastics professionals Vyncolit NV and Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. and held in Gent, Belgium.
