Multimaterial systems combining metals with thermoplastic fiber reinforced polymer composites (TP-FRPC) are the key for light weight design in the automotive industry.
However, the joining of the material partners remains main issue.
Currently, no approach exists which sufficiently meets the three core requirements: weight neutrality, cost- and time efficiency and bonding strength.
Technologies like adhesive bonding or bolted joints show good results for one or two of the criterias, but not for all three of them.
This Project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement Nº. 677625
