From motorsport and niche vehicles to OEM volume manufacture, the automotive sector is heavily focused on the use of lightweight materials to improve vehicle performance and fuel efficiency. Plastics and reinforced glass or carbon fibre composites are now frequently the materials of choice for components throughout the car, interior, exterior and even under the hood.

But the incompatibility of many plastics with other materials causes manufacturing issues if components need to be painted, coated or joined with adhesive. Onto™ treatments chemically modify the surface of the plastic to improve their compatibility with other materials, providing a reproducible alternative to other surface preparation techniques like sanding. Onto™ enables automotive designers to create innovative products from a wider range of advanced materials and to achieve cost and time improvements in processing.
