RMC's Downright Light™ hybrid composite body shell technology can substantially reduce the weight, assembly, and operating costs of cutaway shuttles, van conversions, or specialty school buses.
For example: DCPD lower body panels and service doors are typically 20% lighter and 25% less costly than thermoformed panels, but with the added benefit of superior low temperature impact resistance. And, DCPD is no longer the expensive spread - RMC's new innovative Portal™ molding process slashes DCPD tooling budgets, making this automotive-quality process accessible and affordable for low-volume OEMs.
Other composite technologies that provide lightweight and superior performance include:
- VARTM: 3-D structural flooring, side wall panels, roof
- Pultrusion: plank flooring, side panels
- Reaction Injection Molding (RIM): new epoxy tooling makes polyurethane parts affordable.
