Banana Peels & Human Bones: A Preview of Coastal Automotive’s Foam Expo Presentation 

While scientists have studied ways to maximize automotive safety for over a century, nature has been developing efficient structures to protect life for billions of years.

In Tony McConnell’s upcoming presentation at Foam Expo North America, we’ll look at a few biological structures (including banana peels and human bones) that have inspired innovative new concepts for foam composite materials.

Literally cutting-edge, Tony’s presentation will explore how high-speed CNC foam cutting processes combined with new nature-inspired lattice structures can produce materials that:

  • Reduce weight in EV and aerospace applications without compromising on impact safety.
  • Improve thermal insulation to reduce battery consumption in EVs.
  • Give you, your family (and maybe your pilot) a quieter ride.
