Automotive industry

The evolutionary frontier of the four-wheel world is fuel economy. This is achieved by reducing the weight of vehicles, thanks in part to sandwich panels.

With a view to reducing fuel consumption for both the production of higher-performance, more sustainable electric vehicles and conventional cars, the use of lightweight panels helps to reduce the weight of the vehicle.
Cel produces customised shaped panels for the automotive market.
Working for the automotive industry, CEL can supply, subject to verification with the raw material supplier, MDS datasheets if requested by the customer.

Lightweight but strong armouring

Safety is an essential element in the automotive sector. 
Sandwich panels combined with high-performance fabrics such as Kevlar and carbon fiber, thanks to their shock-absorbing capacity, can be applied in armoured cars to offer protection in the event of assaults and shootings. 

CEL panels can also be used in military vehicles to protect electrical equipment. Polypropylene combines lightness with good thermal insulation properties.
