Automotive & Transportation
Intelligent light weight solutions for moving objects
Automotive and transportation is one of the fastest growing application areas for fiber reinforced plastics (FRP). Apart from the obvious performance requirements in motorsport, today’s challenge to reduce energy consumption and emissions require application of intelligent lightweight materials for every day transportation of products and people.
Because of the potential in flexible and versatile light weight designs, FRP materials should be in a continuous spotlight.
Lantor’s intelligent textiles are being applied in FRP laminates in cars, boats, trucks, trains and buses to make these even lighter and with better aesthetics.
Microsandwiches to provide you the highest aerodynamic performance
Lantor has a long history supplying materials for composites used in exclusive cars where aerodynamic stiffness and lightweight are highly appreciated. Our foam cores Soric® and Teccore® are all about building up low weight stiffness and creating unique sandwich constructions in a unique range of 1-10 mm. These materials can be applied in very complex geometries and are able to hide surface marks of the skin layers.
For the most excellent surface quality a surface layer of Finishmat® is recommended, also preventing labor intensive post-processing.
Our products are drapable, formable and compression resistant for most types of FRP processes
Lantor is proud supplier of products for Porsche, Audi, BMW, Bugatti, Mercedes and Lamborghini.
