Intermediate Products Metal replacement and weight reduction by Reny tape: continuous fiber-reinforced special polyamide

Technical Classification:
[ Intermediate Products ]
[ Products / Processed Products ]
[ Injection + press hybrid molding ] [ welding with metal and weight reduction ]

Point of the Proposed Technology

・Replacement from metal structural elements and weight reduction due to its high strength and high rigidity
・Reinforcement by welding to injection-molded part
・Weight reduction and reinforcement of metal by welding


Weight reduction by replacing metals

New Technology

♦Compared to the conventional Reny® injection-molded parts, UD tape with other resin and metals such as aluminum and zinc, the Reny Tape has a higher strength and rigidity, and can offer metal replacement and weight reduction.
♦ The strength can be easily designed by control fiber direction.
♦ By welding the Reny Tape, Reny® injection-molded part, and others can be reinforced.
♦ The Reny Tape has a high adhesion strength with metal. Composite of metal and the Reny Tape allows weight reduction and reinforcement.
