BASF, Bekaert, Voestalpine to develop thermoplastics with steel

March 23/2012
(basf) -- Together with its partners Bekaert (Belgium) and voestalpine Plastics Solutions (Netherlands), BASF is now working on the development of thermoplastic components that are reinforced with steel cord fabrics and produced by means of injection molding.

The three companies have joined together with the objective of employing and further developing this new EASI technology with partners in the automotive industry. The abbreviation EASI stands for Energy Absorption, Safety and Integrity.
 
In contrast to known types of reinforcements like continuous fiber-reinforced laminates or other carbon or glass fiber fabrics, the steel cord inserts ensure especially the integrity of the molded parts function in a crash situation. This creates an entirely new performance class.
