The transportation

Advanced plastics, resins and fibers help to build lighter, sturdier, safer and more sustainable vehicles, from hood and transmission systems to steering wheels, chassis, airbags, pipes, hoses, interiors and exteriors.We can also help the aviation industry lose weight and reduce energy consumption.

The need to protect precious fossil fuels and limit carbon emissions has been a driving force for sustained industrial development.The key now is to transform and improve the efficiency of traditional cars through intelligent and eco-friendly science.The key to the future lies in research and development of electric and hybrid vehicles that are both environmentally and commercially competitive.

Ten years ago, the airbag, as the most important safety device, used metal as a base, weighed 3.2kg and required 12 processes.Today's airbags weigh only 1.2kg and require only six processes, and weight loss means reduced energy consumption.This innovation is attributed to PA6 materials.It has been leading the way in the production of polymers and already-lactam, which is the raw material for the production of PA6 polyamide.

The production of plastics wear-resistant, high-temperature resistant, bio-based renewable content is increasingly high, which is changing the structure of the car.These materials gradually move the car away from carbon dependence and replace uneconomic and ecological metals.
