Next-gen production-grade carbon fiber car seats
SAIC is committed to leading green travel with innovative technologies to create a safer, more comfortable, and sustainable travel experience. This car seat created together with Covestro and TianCheng meets the general trend of the industry with advantages in sustainability and interior space.
As vehicles become more intelligent and lighter, the industry is turning its focus on the research of using carbon fiber composites for car seats. As a leader in carbon fiber seats, TianCheng is pleased to work with SAIC and Covestro to bring more possibilities for the lightweight development of industry.
Compared with traditional thermoset composites, Covestro Maezio® allows processing in 10 minutes with superior performance and a longer life-cycle. It is easy to transport and store and does not require an ultra-low-temp environment.
Without metal skeletons, the backrest of the seat can be up to 1-2 kg lighter and 5%-41% thinner.
The seat’s surface incorporates the use of Maezio® and with up to 40% recyclable materials, effectively reducing carbon emissions and contributing to sustainability.
Compared to traditional materials, Maezio® CFRTP delivers high recyclability, high production efficiency, light weight and durability. Covestro will continue to be customer-centric, providing high-performance, low-carbon solutions for product innovation and industry sustainability.
