On the road to the composite engine

Bakelite® engineering thermosets are highly efficient alternatives to aluminum
for taking weight out of complex engine parts.

 
 

Stronger than steel, half as heavy

Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) is stronger than steel even though it’s less than half the weight. This amazing strength-to-weight ratio makes it an ideal solution to help lower automotive emissions.
