CAPROCAST consists of the polyamide 6 wash starting from its monomer, caprolactam. The low viscosity of the wash allows to infiltrate fibres in the form of fabrics and preforms reaching high levels of wettability and adhesion to the fibre, giving the thermoplastic composite greater strength and performance.
One of the major challenges of the automotive industry is the lightweighting of vehicles. “Reducing vehicle weight by 10% means a 7% reduction in consumption and consequently in CO2 emissions”.
The sector is demanding a technology capable of manufacturing recyclable structural components and responding to its main requirement: cycle times that align with production needs.
