The application of GB-1 Expanded Glass Beads in the automotive industry is primarily aimed at vehicle weight reduction. The application of GB-1 Expanded Glass Beads in the automotive industry is primarily focused on vehicle weight reduction. It provides a reduction of the cost of vehicle body parts due to a lower material consumption of the products. It also results in reduced fuel consumption, which is especially important for all contemporary vehicle models and brands.

The application of Expanded Glass Beads GB-1 in the production of cargo vehicle body parts facilitates a substantial weight reduction of the cabin, engine compartment parts, etc., and a significant reduction of production costs due to the following factors:

  • simple production and assembly technologies with an integration of structural elements in single units;
  • no painting and drying operations required in the process flow (articles are painted in bulk).

Besides a significant advantage in terms of weight and structural cost reduction, the following performance characteristics are improved as compared to traditional materials: thermal conductivity, resistance to corrosion and improved surface quality.

The application of Expanded glass GB-1 grains during the production of composite components in railway coach manufacturing is practicable from the perspective of technological simplification, performance improvement, and structural cost reduction. The application of GB-1 Expanded Glass Grains for the production of composite components in the railway car manufacture is practical from the viewpoint of simplifying the technology, improving the operational properties of parts, and also reducing the cost of construction.

Reduction of weight of composite carriages as compared to the traditional steel articles significantly reduces dynamic load on railway groundwork, extending its service life. The body parts are not subject to corrosion, atmospheric impacts, do not require application of protective coatings, which simplifies and reduces the cost of production technology, reduces operating costs and increases the overall service life of the product. The unique heat saving properties of GB-1 are especially relevant in the field of passenger car building in the manufacture of interior parts of the rail carriage, and exterior body parts.

High fire safety is caused by non-combustibility of the material and the aforesaid low thermal conductivity of coatings, which simplifies and reduces the production, operating costs and increases the overall service life of the product. The unique heat-saving properties of GB-1 are especially relevant in the field of passenger car building in the manufacture of interior parts of the rail carriage, and exterior body parts.

High fire safety is ensured by non-combustibility of the material and its aforesaid low thermal conductivity.
