The applications for plastics in the Transportation industry are numerous in variety, scope and scale as the industry has many variants and complex designs. Ground-based transportation supported by CANUS would include automobiles, transportation trucks, buses and trains, along with their supporting maintenance programs and infrastructure such as train stations and bus depots. With so many people depending on these systems for their safe and efficient movement on a daily basis, our transportation customers have turned to CANUS for the reliable delivery of high quality components and materials.
While metals still make up a great deal of the components of transportation vehicles and systems, plastics such as ABS and PVC panels and Polycarbonate lenses and windows have replaced many metal and glass applications in the relentless pursuit of lower costs and weight. CANUS has the materials expertise with plastics to help guide customers through the myriad of choices and challenges in selecting plastics as primary and substituting materials. We also have on-site engineering resources to help determine optimal mechanical designs that maximize performance while minimizing production costs.
