Continental Structural Plastics (CSP), a global leader in highly-engineered, composite vehicle components, announced it won the CAMX Unsurpassed Innovation Award for the carbon fiber composite technology used on the GMC Sierra Denali AT4 CarbonPro Editions.
The CarbonPro box is the world’s first use of carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics for structural parts in a high production volume vehicle. The material, box design, and related production and manufacturing process innovations represent a collaborative effort between CSP, its parent company Teijin, and General Motors.
The CarbonPro box is the first commercial application of the material Sereebo®, a proprietary, carbon fiber nylon thermoplastic material that is fully recyclable. The advanced manufacturing techniques used to mold Sereebo into the CarbonPro box are the first mass production technologies developed for carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastics suitable for high-volume programs.
