Lightweight Material as a Replacement for Steel Containers
- Created on Friday, 01 April 2011
An organization seeks a low-weight material that can replace the heavy weight of steel, but withstand the physical and chemical demands of automotive applications. The alternative material can withstand a high-pressure fluid environment and replace steel used in hydraulic accumulators. The material must be inexpensive and must be able to be produced into final component shapes using a cost-effective process that can lend itself to the high-volume, low-cost demands of the automotive market.
