Composite materials enable transportation OEMs to improve their vehicles via lower mass, sleeker styling, greater durability, and lower tooling costs.

INEOS Composites supports car/truck/bus/rail manufacturers and their tier suppliers with innovative material, design and production alternatives, including:

  • Resins and additives for low-density sheet-molding compounds (SMC) for Class A painted exterior panels.
  • Gelcoats that offer UV-light stability in a wide range of colors.
  • Epoxy vinyl ester resins that deliver high physical properties and heat- and impact-resistance, for structural, semi-structural, and underhood applications.
  • Infusion resins (L/VA/RTM, LCM, HLU) for large glass-reinforced appearance and reinforcement assemblies.
