As the world leader in diversified composite technologies, Continental Structural Plastics (CSP) is reshaping the future of vehicle light weighting. We create award-winning, lightweight composite materials that we then mold in to Class A body panels and structural components for our customers in the light vehicle, heavy truck, HVAC and construction markets. Our advanced materials development team has created several patented composite formulations to help customers meet design and regulatory challenges, including our latest material advancement – TCA Ultra Lite®. This award-winning advanced composite competes head-to-head with aluminum for weight- and cost-savings, and beats aluminum on several fronts, including tooling costs, design capability, and dent and corrosion resistance.
As a member of the Teijin Group, CSP has the most innovative composite material development capabilities in the world, coupled with sophisticated product design expertise and robust, quality manufacturing processes, allowing us to be a full-service destination for customers who need a durable, lightweight solution.
CSP and Teijin combine the chemistry, process and supply chain knowledge needed to make advanced composites the material of choice for body panels, pickup boxes, structural applications and battery carriers. Teijin’s extensive expertise in a variety of materials, including carbon fiber, aramids and thermoplastics, joined with CSP’s expertise in thermosets, carbon and glass fibers, creates a veritable “dream team” of materials technologies experts, and the ability to innovate lightweight, hybrid composite solutions that don’t exist today.
