Nissan’s Breakthrough in Carbon Fiber Parts Production for Safer and Lighter Vehicles

Nissan’s manufacturing engineers recently celebrated a technological breakthrough, which will enable the company to roll out carbon fiber parts for mass-produced vehicles. Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) are top performing materials offering significant weight reduction while retaining the same level of strength and rigidity, but the complex, long and costly manufacturing process usually associated meant their use was reserved to sports cars.

Today, Nissan is speeding up the production of carbon fiber automotive parts through an improved compression Resin Transfer Molding (C-RTM) process.
