Plastics and foam optimize interior living space of future car（section 2）
Lightweight materials will be used in future vehicles. From the manufacturer’s point of view, the acceptance of light materials is a key factor in achieving carbon dioxide emission standards. At the same time, they help to improve the range of use or fuel efficiency — without compromising safety. In order to reduce weight, not only metal can be replaced, but also existing plastic applications can be reduced and redesigned by using newly developed or improved thermoplastics. From the user’s point of view, lightweight itself has no emotional experience. Especially when used in the interior of a car, human senses play a role. These materials should not be odorous, they should be eye-catching, and they can withstand the use of many different users because of the increasing popularity of car sharing. As car interiors become living spaces, materials should also be able to reduce noise from the outside of the car. At the same time, the noise inside the car should be left in the car.
