Abstract(s)Automotive plastic components are often required to withstand impact loadings and dissipate energy in automotive collisions, protecting occupants and pedestrians. The design of plastic components against impact loading is not a trivial engineering task, but still a challenging activity. The optimisation of the impact behaviour of plastic products requires a global approach involving material properties, processing methods and geometrical design solutions. This communication presents solutions to develop plastic components requiring high impact performance, based on a highly interrelated triad: polymeric material systems with improved impact toughness, processing methods for plastic products with enhanced toughening performance and design solutions for plastic components with superior impact behaviour
