The new long-glass-fiber-reinforced acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS LGF) alloy from Trinseo, Berwyn, PA/USA, can replace metal in semi-structural components, providing up to 30% weight savings compared to magnesium or aluminum.

In the past, car makers looking for stable and reliable materials for structural components have opted for conventional steel, magnesium, or aluminum. According to the company ABS LGF enables high dimensional stability and high stiffness, making it the lightweight alternative for semi-structural components. As a structural polymer, the ABS LGF composite offers not only lower weight than magnesium, but also low VOC and low odor properties, and enables faster production cycle times.
