Faurecia: Cooperation with Rhodia

Faurecia, a global supplier of engineering solutions and automotive components, and Rhodia, a world leader in the development and production of specialty chemicals, have teamed up to jointly develop next-generation innovative lightweight automotive seat structural components using polyamide-based high-performance engineering plastics.

Faurecia and Rhodia have worked together since November 2009 and ratified their cooperation with the signature of a joint development agreement (JDA) in February 2011. The main aim of this agreement is to develop a range of seat cushion components utilizing Rhodia’s Technyl SI, an impact-modified polyamide grade. The resulting plastic seat cushion structural components are projected to be 20% lighter than conventional steel parts, without compromising safety.

The seat cushion structural components jointly designed by Faurecia and Rhodia are currently in advanced development, with series production expected in 2014. Beyond this important milestone, both companies will extend their cooperation to further explore new innovative solutions to help meet automotive OEM’s needs for lightweight solutions.
