1. High performance TPE in Automotive?

2. 2 Trends in Automotive Technology Yesteryears You can have any colour as long as it is black

3. 3 Today Trends in Automotive Technology

4. 4 Use of Polymer in Cars 11.2% (142Kg) of total weight, (excluding tires). Source: BMW 31.90% 51.10% 5.80% 10.80% 10.40% Body Interior Drive Chassis E&E

5. 5 Facts and Figures Over 2 millions tonnes of Plastics in Europe alone. The most widely specified material. More than 1000 plastics parts. On average, 100kg of plastics replaces 200- 300Kg of conventional materials. E.g. 4.2Kg lighter in Engine cover and 5Kg in Fuel tanks. Cuts oil consumption by 12 million tonnes and reduce CO 2 emissions by 30 millions tonnes/p.a. just in Western Europe.

6. 6 The future Trends in Automotive Technology

7. 7 Reduce exhaust emissions. Better fuel economy. Improved safety. Increase comfort and convenience. Reduce weight Vs functionality. Reduce COST!!!! Trends in Automotive Technology

8. 8 European Union Directive 2000/53/EC End of Life Vehicle 8 to 9 million tonnes of waste every year. 8 to 9 million tonnes of waste every year. Trends in Automotive Technology Design and Manufacture for Re-use, Re-cycle and Re-covery. Reduction and Control of Hazardous substances.

17. 17 Finally introducing. DuPont ETPV engineering thermoplastic vulcanizates Description: a high performance cross-linked elastomer dispersed in: a high performance thermoplastic elastomer Recycling code (ISO 11469): > AEM + TPC - ET < AEM = ethylene acrylic elastomer TPC - ET = thermoplastic ether ester elastomer

18. 18 DuPont ETPV is a thermoplastic elastomer in the shore A range that resists >150 o C in air for 3.000 hours (retains >50% of elongation at break & tensile strength) in combination with good oil resistance. The thermoplastic elastomer brings: Excellent oil and grease resistance Excellent flexural resistance Allows usage on standard thermoplastic processing equipment Significant cost savings versus cross-linked rubber Excellent oil and heat resistance Recyclability The combination of these materials brings : Heat resistance Low hardness Creep- and compression set resistance The cross-linked elastomer brings: ETPV*
