In the automotive industry, EMS-GRIVORY makes a significant contribution to the development of modern vehicle components of the highest quality. The EMS Group generates around 50% of its net sales in the automotive market and all business units of the EMS Group have supplied the automotive industry for several decades.
Reduction in component weight, economic fuel consumption, reduced emissions and optimal recyclability are requirements that must be met by our polymer materials – along with increasingly high standards of comfort and safety. Polyamides replace conventional die-cast alloys for functional parts in vehicle interiors such as arm rests, covers or dashboard components, as well as external parts such as door-handles, wing mirrors or windscreen wiper units.
Our materials are resistant to chemicals, corrosion and weathering and allow efficient design and production of media supply lines for fuel or cooling systems. Under-the-bonnet components are also made increasingly from our polymer materials. For this purpose we manufacture special high-performance polyamides with especially high heat resistance for applications such as air ducts for turbo-charged engines, heat exchangers and throttle bodies. Polymers from EMS-GRIVORY are also found in automotive electrical and electronic systems, which must ensure trouble-free operation even under extreme climatic conditions. Our polyamides are the right products for use in clutch, brake or power steering systems where resistance to motor oils and hydraulic fluids is required. High-performance materials from EMS-GRIVORY fulfil the highest requirements of all modern vehicles.
Griltex adhesives are thermoplastic copolyamides and copolyesters in granule or powder form. Griltex products are used with great success for the coating and lamination of technical textiles used in vehicle interiors. The high-quality granules are extruded to films, nets and webs by leading manufacturers and enable rational processing in all different areas of the automotive industry.
Along with technical bonding applications, EMS-GRILTECH also manufactures adhesion promoters for the tire industry. These special bonding agents guarantee a safe bond between the polyester reinforcing cord and rubber of tires.
EMS-EFTEC develops, produces and markets under the name EFTEC, adhesives, sealants and coating materials for the automotive industry and also offers application technology and customer service.
In the field of bonding, EMS-EFTEC supplies automotive manufacturers with adhesives for use in all stages of the manufacturing process – from fitting of the body panels right up efficient application of the final trim. Plastisol products from EMS-EFTEC, such as underbody coatings, provide protection against stone chipping of exposed body parts. Spray-application sound deadeners from prevent noise from anti-flutter vibration. Bodywork cavities are reliably protected against corrosion by use of protective waxes. EMS-EFTEC products are used in automotive construction as sound deadeners and to seal seams and butt joints against moisture, dirt and noise.
With production locations in all important automotive centres throughout the world, EMS-EFTEC offers local service, just-in-time supply and an optimal price-to-performance ratio.
EMS-PATVAG develops and manufactures ignitors for airbag gas generators, belt tighteners and other automotive safety systems.
Ignitors from EMS-PATVAG are used as an important system component in the manufacture of airbags. The ignitors are manufactured on a large scale to customer-approved specifications and enjoy great market success due to excellent quality and the guarantee of long-term reliability.
