PrePregs

LIGHTER WEIGHT, HIGHER STRENGTH, RECYCLABLE PANELS FOR AUTO INTERIORS

MARKET OPPORTUNITY

The auto industry uses resin infused glass or natural fiber composite (NFC) prepregs to mold 3D interior trim components such as door panels, seat backs and package trays.

PRODUCT ADVANTAGES

INCA has developed a new methodology to produce prepregs from a multi-layered mat of hemp and polypropylene fiber. The product reduces the amount of resin required, reducing weight, lowering costs and improving strength. INCA will be the first company to be able to recycle these parts back into new products on its own production line.

PARTNER

INCA is engaged in a joint development agreement with Toyota North America to commercialize this product for their electric vehicle program.

We share a common goal and purpose and that is to leave this world better than we found it.

"It is my goal at TMNA R&D to lay a foundation for others to follow that envisions a more sustainable future and begin a materials development and management project that propagates itself locally and then globally.

INCA has already begun to develop a vision for a master plan of Vehicle Life Cycle Management building off existing models that exist in Europe and fashioning them into INCA’s vision of sustainable and smart technologies for North America and beyond. INCA understands the need to begin sustainable development of materials management that they can perfect locally and then propagate it globally as it demonstrates success locally. We share a common goal and purpose and that is to leave this world better than we found it.

The promotion and in fact mandating Life Cycle Management of recyclable materials must become part of our long-term planning to preserve and extend the opportunity to extract the maximum value achievable from non-renewable polymers. We must provide a path that deviates from the current End-of-Life Process where the interiors end up in landfill or are burned whereby adding to Greenhouse Gas emissions."
