Road transport accounts for the majority of transport emission worldwide. Without continued lightweighting, the automotive sector will have serious difficulties reaching Net Zero by 2035. AFFT™ offers solutions to help reach these targets. It combines lightweighting with circularity, creating new parts made for re-use. Moreover, AFFT™’s unique forming behaviour allows it to stretch up to 20%, allowing to use automotive stamp forming processes with fibre composites with reduced energy requirements and help manufacture lightweight parts at rate.
Lineat is currently collaborating with leading automotive manufacturers to enable light weighting of vehicles and extending the range of EV’s.
