Graft Polyol RIM Systems: Thermal Stability and Moisture Absorption
Faced with legislative mandates requiring strict adherence to Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, the automotive industry has been searching for means of improving the fuel efficiency of their fleet. Methods such as improving engine efficiency and design changes to give the best aerodynamic air flow have already been implemented. Another widely used approach is that of downsizing. As cars are made smaller, body weights decrease, improving fuel efficiency. However, to maintain adequate passenger comfort requirements in the interior of the vehicle, downsizing can only be carried to a practical limit.
