Hybrid thermoplastics give load floor impact strength

whats the news?
"With goals to absorb higher impact energy while reducing mass and cost for both the rear and front load floors...the decision was made to produce the rear load floor using thermoplastic composites with metallic inserts.


An ambitious multi-year program by Germany’s System integrated Multi-Material Lightweight Design for E-mobility (SMiLE) consortium has developed a demonstrator automotive load floor module that is part of a larger hybrid body-in-white (BIW) structure and that shows great promise for use of composites and non-ferrous metals in a medium-volume production environment.
