BASF Best Use of Fiber Reinforced Plastics Award 2016

Category: Competition

Why does BASF award a prize for the “Best Use of Fiber Reinforced Plastics”? High performance plastics are a very sophisticated form of chemicals and have a large variety. They can contain different types of fibers, fiber lengths, additives and polymers. By varying all these parameters, high performance plastics can be designed to specifically fulfill the requirements of the target application.

The criteria for the award were e.g.:

  • Selection of parts manufactured from fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP).
  • What are the specific benefits to realize these parts in FRP?
  • Choice of fiber, polymer and manufacturing process
  • Balance of costs, mechanical performance, weight reduction and functional integration

And the winner is the team of TU Wien (Car 41).


TU Delft (Car 1)

Uni Stuttgart (Car 26)

UAS Zwickau (Car 96)

TU Dresden (Car 118)

UAS Graz (Car 216)

were the other competing finalists.
