Over the past 30 years, plastics have changed conventional fabrics and emerged as an important engineering software in the automobile undefined. Plastics have confirmed to be low cost whereas delivering automakers with the layout freedom to house defense, styling, and luxury. This e-book presents executives and decision-makers with an summary of the use and benefits of plastics in functions corresponding to tool panels, seat structures, door handles, guidance wheels, air baggage, fenders, hoods, bumpers, cooling platforms, engine covers, valve covers, oil filters, gas tanks, hoses, and lots more and plenty extra. New and destiny plastics functions within the car also are tested.

Typical automotive exterior lighting applications rely on UV protection via proprietary coatings. Solvent resistance is an issue for some automotive applications that otherwise would use PC. For example, the use of PC and its blends in parts that can come into contact with gasoline is discouraged due to the potential stress cracking that might result in the part after exposure to gasoline. The wheelbase is still considered a challenge for plastics, although plastics can make a significant improvement to the rotational mass in the car.
However, wheel systems remain primarily metal, except for decorative uses of plastics such as found on hubcaps. Plastics will continue to permeate automotive applications, and hybrid polymer–metal technologies are expected to be developed in the years ahead. Increased use of airbags also will translate into the need for more plastic solutions. Acceptance of plastics engineering into vehicles will be driven by the need for lightness of weight, fuel efficiency, freedom from petroleum dependence, and improved methods of reuse and recycling of plastics.
