Auburn Hills, Michigan – April 4, 2017 — Continental Structural Plastics (CSP), a world leader in light weight composite technologies, today announced it is the recipient of an Automotive News PACE (Premier Automotive Suppliers' Contribution to Excellence) Award, one of the automotive industry’s most prestigious awards recognizing game‐changing technologies. CSP received the award for its ...
CSP Victall is a joint venture established between CSP and Victall. CSP Victall focus on light weight solution for automotive industry and battery cover for new energy vehicle. The first manufacturing plant is located in TangShan city, HeBei province, China HQ is located in Auto Innovation Park, AnTing, ShangHai.
Our products include Class A body panels and high strength structural parts, the advantage of our products is same mechanical properties compare with metal, yet more light and environmental friendly. All our products are using our composites material with our own patent.
With the advanced technology, CSP Victall can not only manufacture the material by itself, but also design the exterior panels and structural parts with OEMs. We can offer the complete light weight solution to the customer.
Reduced tooling costs
Tooling costs for composites can be as much as 50 to 70% less than those for stamping steel or aluminum. Depending on volume, total program costs can also be significantly reduced.
A single piece made of composite materials can replace an entire assembly of metal parts. Reduced complexity in a panel or structure saves assembly time, and cuts down needed maintenance over the life of the item.
Significant weight savings
Parts made from our TCA Ultra Lite® advanced composite can be as light as aluminum, and as much as a 40 percent lighter than a steel part, while offering all of the benefits that come with working with a composite versus a metal.
High strength‐to‐weight ratio
Composites offer a very high strength‐to‐weight ratio, and can be designed to be far stronger than aluminum or steel. Metals are equally strong in all directions. But composites can be engineered and designed to be strong in a specific direction. Composites can be strong without being heavy.
Complex design capability
Composites can achieve design cues that are impossible with most metals, because they are able to flow over the molds and into deep pockets, curves and other complex shapes that can’t be stamped into metal. This gives vehicle designers the freedom to create almost any shape or form they can imagine.
A quick design refresh is much easier to perform on a current platform or platform update because of the lower tooling costs associated with composites.
Weather and chemical resistant
Composites resist damage from environmental factors and harsh chemicals such as road salt that can eat away at other materials, causing rust.
