The need to preserve precious fossil fuels and limit carbon emissions is what increasingly drives our industry. Today it’s about making conventional vehicles more efficient through smart and eco-friendly science. While strong efforts and strides are made for creating electric and hybrid vehicles that are environmentally and commercially viable.

Our advanced plastics and fibres help build lighter, stronger, safer and more sustainable vehicles - from under-the-hood and power train applications to steering wheels, the chassis, and exteriors. We’re helping the aviation industry in reducing part weights and thereby improving its fuel efficiency.

The ability to hold tolerances through a temperature cycle or withstand variable temperature swings are important for plastics being used in the transportation industry. In addition to handling temperature, Gharda plastics provide the dimensional stability and wear resistance needed for a variety of component applications.
