To address the various mobility needs, composite materials have contributed for more than 50 years already to the development of vehicles, making many things possible in terms of design, durability, and light weighting.

Today, composite materials bring new benefits and applications that are becoming even more relevant in the context of an increasingly diverse and fast-evolving mobility.

The development of new fuels and energies is also a new application sector for composite materials, as they offer key benefits, particularly for the battery pack housing and integration in EVs and PHEVs, as well as for the production of the onboard storage tanks of hydrogen-powered vehicles.

The various types of technologies, from thermoplastics to thermosets, from glass fiber to carbon fiber and with the added value of high tech simulation, optimization and production techniques, composites are offering a broad arena of applications. The mostly considered benefits and applications are:

  • Lightweighting
  • Design Freedrom, Aesthetics & Flexibility
  • Resistance & Resilience
  • Strength & Stiffness
  • Part count Reduction & Functions Integration
  • Hybridization & bonding with other materials
  • Fuel Storage of Hydrogen - & LPG - powered vehicles
  • Battery Housing & Integration on Electric/Hybrid Vehicles
  • Connectivity Integration

Composites are more and more integrated in the automotive development, as well as in the production processes, and they play a key role in the range of materials that engineers can select while developing new vehicles and components. With new bonding techniques, allowing to combine metal and composite materials, new opportunities have opened, as they are enabling to choose the right material for the right use, making the automotive development a composition of materials and technologies, including composites.

JEC Group has introduced the benefits and applications offered by composite materials, using auto-motive parts to demonstrate them, in a leaflet entitled “Composite Mobility”. To highlight and detail the latest innovations in the composite industries, we have selected illustrations amongst JEC Innovation Awards and other illustrations from the JEC Composites Magazine or Programs.

JEC Group will showcase at major automotive motor shows, under the motto “Composite Mobility”, the various benefits composite materials are offering:

  • Presentation of composite materials and their benefits and applications on a Composites Pavilion
  • Showcase of innovations and applications presented by key players of the composites industry and their experts
  • Diffusion of the JEC Composites Magazine n°123 with a major focus on Automotive, including the release of a special research made by Deloitte on Composites in Automotive
  • A place to connect and exchange with the key designers and engineers of most of the automotive OEM’s

The first JEC Composites Pavilion will be held at the heart of the Mondial.tech exhibition floor, part of the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

The Paris Motor Show launched Mondial.Tech in 2018, a BtoB event dedicated to technological innovations for automobiles and tomorrow’s mobility. Automobile manufacturers, equipment manufacturers, Tech giants and start-ups deepen their collaboration to shape the future of transportation and mobility.
Mondial.Tech will take place from October 2 to 6 and will be an exchange platform for the stakeholders of the industry, bringing together all the managers and experts in charge of innovation in the sector with representatives of the government, the financial sector and the media. Its mission is to tighten the links between the players of the automobile industry and those of tomorrow’s mobility, to bring together a wider ecosystem.

Likewise, the second Composites Pavilion will occur at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit in January 2019, based on the same model of sharing knowledge and developing networking.

Such as for JEC Composites Pavilion held at Mondial.tech, JEC offers major composites manufacturers the opportunity to be part of the upcoming Composites Pavilion to be held à NAIAS.
