Under-vehicle protection plates for electric vehicles

November 30, 2021   Maryam Farag

TRB Lightweight Structures developed a composite under-vehicle protection plate that improves impact absorption while decreasing weight.

These panels have been created from a combination of materials and a proprietary, toughened TRB resin, using a manufacturing process that enables production at high volume.

The new protection plates utilize a sandwich construction of advanced materials, layered intelligently to provide varying impact absorption strengths depending on location. Testing has shown impact absorption rates that are typically doubled compared with best-in-class steel solutions, while halving the weight.

The plates can be painted although, unlike steel, paint is not required for corrosion protection, while the low weight construction simplifies installation and replacement.
