The automotive industry and the commercial vehicle sector are key players in the energy and mobility transition. As a long-standing partner of the automotive industry, CaPlast contributes to their success with lightweight, resistant, high-performance coatings and composites that are harmless to health.
All our thermoplastic coatings are free of plasticizers and solvents. This avoids emissions and odors inside the vehicle and makes a positive contribution to the environment. But we are not satisfied with this. We want to make our contribution to a sustainable circular economy, which is why the development of materials made from renewable raw materials such as biopolymers, as well as recyclable and reusable products, for example for transport protection, is at the top of our agenda.
Saving weight while offering high strength is one of the key objectives in vehicle construction, as this saves raw materials and reduces fuel and energy requirements. Manufacturers of motor homes, commercial vehicles or sales vehicles in particular are looking for lightweight, thin-walled materials that are also impact-resistant, corrosion-resistant and durable. GRP or sandwich constructions are being tested, but especially in the motor home sector, wooden constructions still represent the common practice. As a long-standing partner of well-known manufacturers of fiber composite panels, CaPlast contributes its development know-how right from the early stages of the value chain. Our thermoplastic fiber composites naturally contain no resins, plasticizers or solvents.
All our products and solutions are specially tailored to customer needs and individual applications. For more protection, safety and driving comfort, our adhesive coatings, textile coatings and composite materials can be extended with additional properties. Additives such as colors, UV stabilizers and flame retardants can be added to the extrusion coatings.
