This month, the media brand CompositesWorld features L&L’s innovative Continuous Composite Systems™ (CCS™) in the article “Seat frame demonstrates next-generation autocomposites design.” The article explores the lightweight design, simplified and cost-effective manufacturing, the new features and materials, and process innovations that won awards for the 2022 Toyota Tundra‘s second-row seat frame.
CCS™ enables ultra-strong, lightweight structures at cost-competitive rates. The CCS™ continuous fiber-reinforced materials can be used as a main structure, combined with sealants or structural adhesives to create a unified macrostructure, or combined with injection molding.
L&L Products is proud of the advancements CCS™ brings to the composite industry for smart and innovative manufacturing and product solutions. CCS™ won the 2022 Altair Enlighten Award for achievements in vehicle weight savings and the 2022 SPE Automotive Innovation Award for the 2022 Toyota Tundra™ Composite Seatback Design.
Key product attributes of CCS™ include:
- Consistent quality and dimensional accuracy
- Nonconductive and insulating with a low co-efficient of thermal expansion
- Ease of assembly
- Cost-effective solution proven to be 75% lighter than steel and 30% lighter than aluminum
- Corrosion resistant
- Excellent structural properties
